My mom just had a birthday a few days ago, so I made up a set for her as one of her gifts. I went with fun spring-like colors, and they turned out really cute! I figured that I'd share them with you:
Green scalloped boarder with flowered center towel:
Pink swirled towel with gradient coloring:
Sea glass flower towel:
These are the colors that I used for everything:
All of them are from Martha Stewart's paint line. I've seen them at both Joann Fabrics and Michaels craft stores. From left to right, those colors are:
- yellow jacket
- beach glass
- wild blueberry
- wedding cake
To make the light grass green color (for the scalloped border towel), I mixed some "beach glass" and "yellow jacket" together. To make the lilac, I mixed some "wild blueberry," "amaranth," and "wedding cake," together. For the gradient pink towel, I just added "wedding cake" to the "amaranth."
And just so you know, these are the potato stamp shapes that I used:
Nothing too fancy, and they are pretty easy to carve, and totally doable. I am very tempted to go make some more...
