Hand Stamped Scarf Tutorial
Step 1 – Design the stamp
Squeeze a bit of your paint on a paper plate. Use the paintbrush to spread out a thin layer. Press the eraser into the paint and then onto your fabric.
Let the paint dry then heat seal it with as hot an iron as your fabric can handle.
To create a baby hem, fold your raw edge about 1/4″ to the wrong side. Stitch very close to the fold, about 1/8″. (I did a demonstration with white fabric and blue thread so you can see it, but of course you’d want to use matching thread!)
Trim the fabric as close as you can to the stitching. Be careful and use applique scissors if you have them. It really is no fun when you cut a hole in your project…I may have first hand experience…just saying…
Fold the stitched line over to the wrong side and stitch over the previous stitching line.
Done! You’ll see one line of stitching from the right side and two lines on the back side.
Once you’ve practiced fabric stamping and baby hems, you can apply these skills to so many different projects!
