You will need: tablecloth, paper, pencil, fabric paint in two tones of green, saucer, small stamp roller, leaf design stamp, spare fabric if requirred.
Time needed: 30 minutes
If the tablecloth is new, wash, dry and iron it first. Lay it out on a flat, firm surface, mright side up. Sketch out your design on a piece of paper, then lightly mark out on the tablecloth where you stamped designs will go. Pour a little of each shade of fabric paint into a saucer so that they mix slightly. Apply some paint to the roller, then roll the paint on to the stamp. (If you have not used stamps on the fabric before, practise on a spare piece of fabric first.) Press the stamp on to the tablecloth, then reapply paint before stamping again. Repeat to cover the tablecloth with the design. Fix according to the manufacturers instructions.
