stamped stitched tea towel

After heat setting the stamped mug image on the tea towel, I added some sketchy free motion stitching to the mugs.
While I use the Setacolor fabric paints regularly, I haven't often used them on something that will get lots of washing like a tea towel would.Once,  I did do a t-shirt for my husband and while the paint faded slightly after the first wash, it has held up on subsequent ones.

I'm tempted to throw it in a wash to see how it holds up as I want to give it as a gift. I'll keep you posted if I do.
