I created this DIY a little while back and have enjoyed it so much, that I want to now hand-stamp everything!  I originally did made this because our couch pillows were in much need of a face lift.  As in, they were originally a bright green… They have been quite the eye sore for some time.  Thanks to this fun craft, I was able to create a new look for our living room for a fraction of the cost!  This versatile DIY can be used to help with any project; from home decor to casual wear.

1: Cut the Potato

So this is where your individual creativity comes in.  Cut your potato in half, and cut out a feather design, (or really what ever design you want).  It doesn’t have to be perfect, as you can tell from mine 🙂 I tried to use a sharpie to trace a little outline… which didn’t really work… haha but gave me something to go off of.  Use your small knife to carve out your design. (Don’t worry if you mess up… it’s just a potato… and you’ve got another half if you need a back up) 🙂

2: Get Stampin’

Make sure your fabric is on some newspaper or something so the paint doesn’t bleed onto your table.  So in a little bowl, add a little water to your paint, mix it up, and brush some on your stamp.

I like the faded look, so you don’t have to press down too hard.  And go ahead and do a few stamps before you reapply your paint.

I spaced mine out kinda evenly, but not perfect.  I also left some blank spaces so I could go back and add some gold stamps of the feather.

And here is the finished product! Make sure to let it dry completely before making anything out of it.
