I loved the idea of using my stamps on fabric by rubbing with fabric paint sticks. I used Pentel Arts Fabric Fun Pastel Dye Sticks. Worked like a charm with one exception, this technique doesn't work with word stamps as the image stays in reverse!
The next technique I tried from Sharing Stitches: Exchanging Fabric and Inspiration to Sew One-of-a-Kind Projects was the fabric circle embellishment. In Sharing Stitches these little elements are used to make earrings but I kind of like how it looks as a 3-d pom pom.
There is so much more fun to try in Sharing Stitches: Exchanging Fabric and Inspiration to Sew One-of-a-Kind Projects!
