Start by purchasing a package of plain white tea towels, which are also commonly known as flour sack towels.  You will also need a stencil or stamp and paint and paint brushes.

I dug through my stash and found a cute little lemon slice stamp that I knew I wanted to use for my lemonade hostess gift, but it needed something else.  I went to Michael’s where I found a fun package of Handmade Charlotte stencils on sale to add a simple design to my tea towels. After washing and ironing the tea towels I laid the stencil on the towel and carefully painted on the design.

I dipped the lemon stamp in paint and gently stamped the design above the stenciled design to complete the custom design.
