Although we made these apple print shopping bags at MOPS, it’d be a great craft for kids to do.  Fruit can make some great patterns.  I purchased the bags here for only $1.50 each.  We chopped an apple in half, painted each half with fabric paint and stamped them onto the fabric.  After the paint dried we ironed the fabric as per paint instructions.  I remember doing the same thing onto wrapping paper when I was a kid.  I also think apple stamping would look great on tea towels and would make a great gift.

Have you ever done any fruit stamping?  What did you stamp?

The inspiration for these bags came from here, thanks to pinterest.

    Looks a fun activity to do and would make a great gift at Christmas or even for a birthday party. I haven't done any fruit printing before but I like the effect of celery printing I've seen, it looks like a flower.

    Oh totally delightful Emma, I love this one! What a fab economical bag too. The last time I did any fruit/vegie stamping was when I was in school… but once again you've inspired me and given me a great idea for our next craft session. Thank you! xo
