1-4 1 Year of Stitches
I've been experimenting with rubber stamping for motif outlines on fabric. Regular stamping ink bleeds when it gets wet (and would probably stain the thread). The dark pink stamped images were from a stamp pad, and then dampened after it dried.
Then I tried coloring the stamp with fabric markers, and that worked fine. I already know those are permanent and won't fade or bleed. Since the entire cloth will be covered with stitching, the ink color is not important. I'm going to work the snowflakes fairly soon.
Also- as much as I love the sun face stamp, the design is too intricate for embroidery. Simple stamps will work best.
