Here are the raw materials included in the box. There’s 2 plain white tea towels, a foam tray, a large rubber stamp (it’s a wooden block with thick rubber on one side), a tool for carving the rubber stamp (that came with 3 different sizes of carving tips), ink, and a rubber roller to put the paint onto the stamp.
Here’s the example photo from Darby Smart’s website, showing one towel with all stripes, and another with words printed instead of a design.
Here’s my finished design! It’s not perfect, but I like the way it turned out. I started out planning to do an all chevron pattern, and then realized just how ambitious/difficult that would be to carve after starting one side. I changed the rest of the stamp to simple stripes, and it actually turned out pretty well!
Verdict: I really enjoyed this Darby Smart project! Not only did I get a lot of room for customization, I also get something I can use around the house or for décor (probably décor – these aren’t machine-washable, just washable by hand, and I probably won’t put that effort into cleaning them anyway).
