This is kind of a grown-up version of making Easter eggs. You still get the pretty spring colors, but the end result has a practical purpose — and you’re not eating blue hard-boiled eggs for a week.

This tutorial uses Fairgood's By the Numbers Napkin Kit and features Neil Summerour’s Lust.

Step 1: What you'll need:

By the Numbers Napkin Kit, which includes four cotton napkins, vinyl numbers, and fabric dye powder (four pastel colors).
4 tsp. salt
2 cups warm water
Atomizer (If you’re using multiple colors, having an atomizer or spray bottle for each color would be easier, but it's not necessary.)
Paper towels
Large piece of cardboard
What typeface is this?
<p>So cute! I love the set of all the colors and the yellow looks great with the gold-silverware :)</p>
<p>I assume this could be done with any generic liquid dye and stencilling material?</p>
<p>For sure Kiteman! However we would recommend a fabric dye and a stencil material that adheres. If you can't iron the stencil on firmly, the liquid will bleed under the stencil and not create a crisp line.</p>
<p>OK, thanks.</p>
