Stamp Quilt by Els Van Baarle


You can simply make a nice fabric-stamp with cheap material.
Paste a chunk of wood (at least 2 cm thick) with all kinds of material.
It should all be the same thickness, so don’t put a button and a match together.
Cover the chunk of wood with double-fix carpet tape. It’s very strong.
After washing the stamp it will still remain on the wood.
Paste the shapes until the edges. See our sewing picture.
Cover the table with a soft layer, then a piece of old cotton. No plastic, the fabric will move.
Use thick paint on a plate or in a little container. Use a good roller and put enough paint on the roller. Take a second container or plate to roll it out so you won’t get any lumps of paint.
Roll the stamp in and make a sample.
When the paint is dry you can iron the printed fabric at the backside. 
Read the user’s manual.
