DIY: Stamped T-shirt

Stempelen intro

A while ago I saw a pineapple T-shirt in a store. I thought it was very cute but I’m not allowed to spend too much money on thinks I don’t neccessarily need so the T-shirt was a no go. But I became so inspired: I saw myself stamping all kind of T-shirts and tops and maybe even towels and bags.

Surviving winter with natural remedies

thee intro

If you did not grow up in The Netherlands and/or if you’re younger than thirty years old you probably don’t know ‘Klazien uut Zalk’ (Klazien from Zalk). When I was about ten years old (around 1989/1990) Klazien, a seventy something grandma from the country and her natural remedies were quite a hit.

Now that I have been studying Nutrition and Holistic Health for a while, I suddenly thought of Klazien and asked my mom if she still had the book. And that was a really good idea.

Stamping is da bomb! DIY

stap 4 - tasjes af

Yeah! This DIY is greener than green. We are going to stamp with fruit and vegetables and well, that’s pretty green right? I wouldn’t say the same for the paint I used by the way. But hey, I’m doing the best I can. You can always go and look for a more sustainable version…

So allright. We are going to stamp on fabric. And to make it even more exciting: we are not only stamping on fabric, we are going to make a bag of it. Not just any bag but a very cool one. Are you with me? It’s very easy. Really!
