Bristle paint brushes
Sewing machine (optional)
(or store-bought flour sack towels)
DecoArt Fabric Painting Medium
If using store-bought flour sack towels, skip to step 3.
Pre-wash fabric, then cut to dimensions of 15.5 x 26-inches.
Mark the borders of your stripes with painter's tape.
Paint the exposed fabric with a 2:1 mix of acrylic paint and DecoArt fabric painting medium.
After painting, wait 24-48 hours for the paint to dry. Then “heat set” the paint with an iron for 30 seconds before washing.
If sewing, finish the towel with a double-fold hem on all sides. Mitered corners work best.
