How to stamp a St. Patrick's Day shirt with a potato.

Did you know you can stamp clothing with a potato?  It’s true, you can!  Not only that it looks really cute when you give it a St. Patrick’s Day spin. 

The supplies you will need to potato stamp a T-shirt.

Supplies:

Making a potato stamp with a cookie cutter.

Before you do anything, make sure your potato is larger than your cookie cutter.  Next, cut the potato in half.  Insert your cookie cutter into the white fleshy part of the potato.  you might be wondering: “why are we using a heart to make a St. Patrick’s Day shirt” – well that is because when you combine the heart stamps it makes a clover.

Using a cookie cutter to make a potato stamp.

Use a pairing knife to cut off the excess potato around the edges of the cookie cutter.  The heart shape should be the only part that is raised as it will act as your stamp.  At this point you might blot your potato to remove excess moisture.

Using Crafters Ink with Potato Stamps.

Using one of the excess pieces of potato carve a stem for the clover.  Remember, you are working with a potato the stamp is not going to be exact.

Clover shaped potato stamping.

Test your stamp on a piece of paper before you move on to your shirt.  Three hearts for a clover, 4 stamps for a lucky four leaf clover.  Don’t forget your stem.

How to stamp a shamrock onto a shirt.

How you stamp your T-shirt is totally up to you.  I went with a random pattern all over including the sleeves.  Some of the clovers have 4 petals and some 3.

Make one for yourself, or your kiddlet like I did.  I can’t wait to send my son off to school on St. Patrick’s Day in his new spiffy spud stamped shirt!
