Working on the Inside.....
The pennies are placed where the stamps will go
The stamps are done!
My first carved stamp!
Sometime last year I started contemplating having my lining fabrics printed with my own designs. Then, I started remembering how much fun I had in high school with printing and painting on fabric. So, I dragged out some plain white cotton from the stash that I collected from my mom a while back and started playing. My first attempts were pretty gross. Not much was happening except for mud. I tried washes and dry brush and spray bottle painting and I was not impressed with any of it. So I gave up and just kept collecting random pieces of cotton for my collection. Then, I thought I would give fabric stamping a try. So off I went to our local art store and got myself some fabric dye and blank stamps for the carvin' and I finally got results I like! This one is green with black hearts, and multicolored dots. I think it's a mighty fine start, and a nice break from sitting at the sewing table too!
