Baby’s First Mother’s Day Gift Idea

I recently had this idea to stamp baby’s footprint onto tea towels as a mother’s day gift, and now I am really wishing I’d made one of these with all of my newborns. Wouldn’t that be such a fun little collection to have?

Since my baby boy isn’t here yet, my good friend Sarah was kind enough to lend me her darling daughter’s foot. We used my favorite thirsty, flour-sack towels. Brush the sole of baby’s foot with acrylic craft paint in the color of your choice. Carefully stamp onto a corner of the towel. We ended up stamping the two opposite corners on each towel just for extra fun.

By the way, I have done quite a few painted-fabric crafts (including these similar monogram tea towels) with just the regular, inexpensive, acrylic craft paint. I never pay extra for the stuff intended for fabric, and my projects have held up just fine.

    I just made two of these yesterday, one of my grandson’s hands and the other of his feet. The feet turned out awesome, but the hands are another story, but still awesomely cute! He’s only 5 months only, so trying to get his hand spread out flat was next to impossible. I also stamped his name and the year above the hand/foot prints and think I’ll make this an annual tradition for a few years. Thanks so much for the great idea!
