I love the idea of using interesting items around your home in craft projects. I thought that fingerling potatoes were the perfect stamps for fruit and veggies shapes! You don’t need to do more than cut them in half! Keep reading to see how we made this colorful summer tea towel…

Step 3: At the end we added small details with a paint brush like strawberry dimples or green stems on the eggplants. Set paint with an iron after dry.
