Olive, Turquoise and Black Napkins and Dishtowel

We love the subtle colors this combo produced. This is one of our favorites for sure, this is a fairly light application so its looks very watercolor-like, I can’t wait to experiment with a more heavy hand on the olive green!

Fabric Preparation

Crumbled fabric tightly into flat rounds and put in 3 rows of 4 onto rack in our bar sink, so the fabric is crumbled up tightly. Put dryer sheets on top of fabric, then a good 5 inches of ice on top
