Potato Stamping.

Yesterday I was in Hobby Lobby, 40% off coupon in hand, looking for fabric to make a banner for Mason's nautical themed birthday party. I realized I didn't have an idea for a tablecloth! The printed fabrics are a bit pricey(considering I only need the tablecloth to last one day) & nothing really caught my eye.

I decided to buy plain white fabric & create my own pattern by potato stamping anchors. It was simple process that I was able to mostly complete during morning nap time & finish up during afternoon nap. 

I was surprised at how easily my Xacto knife cut through the potato. I was nervous that the curvy lines would be difficult to manage. It was actually easy & fun!

I opted to "eyeball" the spacing, instead of measure it out. I love the relaxed character of the imperfect pattern.

This project got me really excited to work on the rest of Mason's birthday party! 

Happy Friday!


  1. So. Stinking. Cute!

  2. OMG! I love this! I love anything and everything with anchors!
