Summerly printed tablecloths for Int’l Bloggers Club Challenge

I wanted to do this for the longest time! Print on fabric and make fun tablecloths! So I thought that it was a perfect fit for our summer theme at Int’l Bloggers Club this month. And the Best I thought was: I had everything handy at home and you might have it ready as well, in case you like to give this a try! It’s fun & easy. 

I had white linens that I cut in half, cause I wanted to make two different mix & match tablecloths. And my “stencils” were a potatoe masher and a mini baking mold. Check it out:

And of course blue paint, fabric paint or acrylic, I used acrylic, I didn’t have fabric paint in the blue tone that I wanted to use. So acrylic paint washes well too, it does get a little stiff if you use too much, but if you just roughly stamp it it’s fine!

And then I got going. The potatoe masher was easy to grab and just dip in the paint and print. I used the back side of the mini baking mold and brushed paint on it and then printed it on the fabric pressing it down firmly.

I didn’t mind the uneven prints and that it didn’t come out perfect.

    Hey Katrin…these really have a lovely batik feel to them…and you’re right…they are very summerly. I love how you used what you had in the kitchen to stamp them. And I know you are going to have so much fun teaching art this fall!
    Have a wonderful week.
    Hugs, Lynn

      Yes, it will be fun, art with the little ones is great, love it! And these were fun as well! Hope you’re enjoying your 4th of July friend!

    Wow for the creative use regular items! I like how they turned out, no one would never guess what you used for these. I also like the idea that you don’t need any fancy equipment for these, just look around your kitchen. 🙂

    • Katrin

      Thanks so much Elina! Yes, I love projects that involve stuff I have at hand!

    Katrin, how GENIUS! However did you come up with such a cute idea? It absolutely looks like you bought it! I love the idea and the summery look you created with what you had on hand.

    • Katrin

      Thank you so so much Florence! I don’t know how, i just saw that masher and liked the form of it I guess, lol, not sure…. but it worked out!

    Katrin, I love this DIY. So simple but so cute. I have several flour sack dish towels that I think would work for this project. I have plenty of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint which can also be used on fabric. Thanks for the inspiration and thanks so much for sharing at Your Inspired Design Link Party.

      Thanks so much Carol, it’s a lot of fun making these, and I bet you can find more interesting printing objects around the house. Chalkpaint is great on fabric, i’ve never tried it but heard about it!

      It was lots of fun to make these Sandra, now I’m thinking with what to print next 😉

    Girl, I need to come up with new words that mean the same as “I love this, it’s so cool, your style and creativity floor me” Cause I keep saying this over and over in your comment section. But I really mean it, project after project. You take the simplest things and turn them into art. Just bits and pieces of items laying around, or use that marker of yours to make the world a more beautiful place. It seems so effortless and airy. I am jealous of your talent! Seriously love these table cloths and I love that color of blue. These turned out so cool!

      Lol Nikki, you know I love simple and it doesn’t have to involve big tools for me to make a project fun, like these tablecloths… Sometimes it’s right there in front of me and I use it. Thanks for the visit friend!

    Great idea, wow, and the tablecloths looks stunning. I’m going to be looking at my kitchen utensils in a whole new way after seeing this, lol!!

    • Katrin
      29/06/2016 at 12:50

      Hahahaha, Michelle, so funny. I know, hey? I didn’t even know I had a masher, lol, I think I made mashed potatoes like once or twice for Christmas maybe… not sure, but yep, definitely prefer printing with it!

    Who don’t love something fabulous, and yet inexpensive to acquire it, thanks to you! Like most have already stated, who would have thought of creating such gorgeous creativity. Thank you so much for sharing.

    You never cease to amaze me- how do you think of these things? If I had a potato masher in my hand I still wouldn’t think of using it in this way! You are an out of the box thinker for sure. I love the blue and white, so summery. Thank-you for another inspired post, as always!

    • Katrin
      28/06/2016 at 08:48

      Aw Thanks so much Ellen! That means so much to me! I love getting creative and the masher was so easy to grab because of the handle, now I’m looking for different kind of mashers, lol. but not to make mashed potatoes, although I love eating those too!

  • Brianna

    These looks so cool. I would never have guessed what you used for stamps. I’m sure you know but there is fabric medium you can add to acrylic paint if you can’t find the right color to make it softer.

    • Katrin
      27/06/2016 at 22:32

      Oh, I didn’t know that, Thank you Brianna, will have to look for that!! Thanks so much!!

    I absolutely love how your tableclothes turned out, Katrin! The white and blue looks so fresh and summery. What a great idea to use a masher and a baking tin to stamp. Both designs are very pretty.
    Have a wonderful week! 🙂

    • Katrin
      27/06/2016 at 20:28

      Thanks so much Julia! Printing is a quick thing and i like when I have stuff around and don’t have to go out and buy it!

    Katrin, i just love your tablecloths!! I bet this was so much fun to make!! The patterns from the potato masher and baking mold are so cool!! You did a great job on this! It’s so summery and lovely!!

    This is truly Kreativ!
    I like fabric painting and I would’ve never thought to use a potato masher for a stencil.
    I love the finished product.

    off to kitchen to find MY potatoe masher – guess it won’t be making ONLY puree any more 😉

    • Katrin
      27/06/2016 at 20:23

      hahaha, nope, not only useful to make mashed potatoes! Thanks so much Ana 🙂

    Katrin I love the blue on white it looks so fresh and summery. I can’t believe you used a potatoes masher, that is really clever. Now we can all make pretty tablecloths at a fraction of the cost that we are charged at the stores. They really are much prettier because you get to put your own special design.

    • Katrin
      27/06/2016 at 20:22

      Yes, absolutely, Mary, I love the blue and white this summer it’s cool! Thanks so much friend!

    Katrin you are so funny and creative!! Who in the world would think about using a potato masher to make stencils? Only a great mind can do it! Your tablecloth looks so pretty and it’s perfect for summer both indoors or outdoors. Enjoy it!!

    • Katrin

      Hahaha, thanks so much Pili! It was so easy and really fun to use what I found here!
