First, use your Silhouette to design and cut your stencil for your towel. The kit comes with special vinyl specific for this purpose. I must say I was very impressed with the quality of the stencil vinyl in this kit. I used stock images off of the internet and my Silhouette software to trace the image. The kit also comes with a download card from the Silhouette store where you can download exclusive fabric ink designs for free.
The kit also comes with a full set of instructions and pictures. Everything was very easy to follow right from inside the kit. Here is my vinyl after it was cut with the Silhouette.
Just remove the areas of your stencil with your hands or the hook that comes with the kit.
Then, apply the transfer tape to your design. I actually used my gift card to press the tape down and eliminate air bubbles.
Remove the vinyl liner and apply the entire thing to your towel. Again, I used the gift card to burnish down the vinyl.
Carefully remove your transfer tape and you are left with your stencil.
The kit comes with a sponge and a foam brush. The directions indicate that the sponge will give more of a distressed look so I went with it. I applied the black ink to my design.
Allow your project to dry completely before removing the vinyl stencil.
You can work on another project in the meantime. Using the same steps, I made this towel with a row of jars. Mix your acrylic paint and fabric medium according to the directions on the fabric medium bottle.
Once dry, just remove your stencil to reveal the magic underneath. Be sure to iron your design to heat set it before using or washing.
