Fabric Stamping TutorialApril 12, 2012 6:15 am Craft Trends, Crafts, Green Crafting, Guest Bloggers, Techniques and Mediums

Here is a tutorial for creating and using your own fabric stamp. The fabric stamp I made was carved out of an eraser. The only supplies you’ll need are an eraser, craft knife and fabric paint. I used an owl charm to help create my design, you can use a stencil or free-hand a drawing to stamp.
Start with an eraser. I chose to cut the stamp in half since I was making a smaller stamp.
Sketch out your design with a pencil. I traced an owl charm on mine. I kept it fairly basic so that it would be easy to carve.
Continue working until you have cut out the whole design. Now start stamping! Do a few practice ones on paper to start. I chose to stamp on some fabric bags I had on hand but it was challenging to stamp on the uneven surface.
You can leave it like that or do what I did next and trace around your design. I wanted to add details and let the whole piece pop a bit more.
