Tutorial: Apple Stamp Tote

Apple Stamp Tote ::  California Grown Blog

Did you know you can use apples, just like potatoes, as stamps for creating your own designs?  I opted to keep the “apple effect” and kept the apples fully intact.  It was super simple and easy enough for kiddos to tackle this project all by themselves!  I envision this as a cute teacher’s gift or even a reusable grocery bag!

Let’s make one together!

MATERIALS

Apple Stamp Tote ::  California Grown Blog

  • Generic tote
  • Ripe California apples
  • Fabric paint
  • Fabric pen

DIRECTIONS

Saturate the flesh of the apple

Place the painted apple onto the tote.  Press down to make sure the apple makes contact with the fabric in every spot.

***Keep a piece of cardboard in between the tote layers to prevent paint transfer***

Lift the apple to reveal your design!  Each print will be  a little different.  That’s what makes this stamping so unique!

Mix your colors and apple slices if you prefer

Use a fabric pen to outline the stamp and make the image stand out
