• Solid White Tea Towels
• Dog Stencil (Get the free stencil download at
• Scissors or X-Acto Knife
• Non-Toxic Craft Paint (Martha Stewart works great!)
• Sponge or Paint Brush
• Paper & Printer

HANDY PREPPING TIPS If your tea towels are a tad on the wrinkly side, give them a quick steam or iron. You may find it helpful to lay your tea towel on a flat surface with paper or another piece of fabric underneath to prevent any paint from bleeding through onto your table.


STEP 1 Download and print your dog stencil (find them at, then use scissors or a X-Acto knife to cut out the inside of the stencil.

STEP 2 Place the stencil on top of your tea towel. Using your brush or sponge, fill in the stencil with paint.

STEP 3 Carefully lift the stencil straight up and let dry. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you have completed your design.

STEP 4 “Heat set” the paint once it is dry by ironing the back of the fabric or placing in the dryer to tumble. The paint should be permanently set after that.

The Chihuahua stencil is not accessible (Dachshund one is). Can you fix the problem?

When someone writes an article he/she retains the idea
of a user in his/her brain that how a user can understand it.
Therefore that's why this post is amazing. Thanks!

I don't even know how I finished up here, but
I assumed this submit was good. I don't recognize who you
are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you happen to aren't already.

Greetings! I know this is somewhat off topic but I
was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
site? I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm
looking at options for another platform.

I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of
a good platform.

What about other pups such as Schnauzers - this would be great as a handout at our yearly Schnauzer Rescue Event
