This is an idea that I've been playing with in my head for a long time, and when I saw Embrace Life, I had to try it out! It all started with my dear friend, Lissa, brought over a finished wall quilt that she had made for a wedding gift. She handed me a stamp from Wonderful Words II and aske ME to stamp it on the quilt! We were both too scared to do it, but it did plant in my head the very cool idea of stamping on fabric. (She stamped it in the end and it worked beautifully).
As many of you know, my other passion (gee, how many do I have?) is sewing. I wasnted to make a skirt and decided to use a solid white and embellish with stamps! Now this is really opening up some possibilities here . . . !! Watch out – I think I can feel some fantastic handbags coming on! And oh my, what about those quilt options?!
My dad was taking some family photos of us, and this is not a great one of either us nor the skirt, but the best one of the skirt "in action". I took a close up so you could more detail.
You need to use a permanent or fabric-specific ink for this. For my skirt, I have used the Jet Black Staz-On and heat set it with a dry iron. Quilters and Dressmakers, I'd love to see how you incorporate stamps into your projects!
