Those are really cool stamps!
thanks Jai! yes, just follow through email for now - I've tried to set it up for rss feed but I guess that's not working... Kelly
how did you make them?
Hi Hannah - it is so easy! For the stamp with the lines I just wrapped yarn around a block of wood and for the other one I used a swatch of knitting and wrapped it around a block of wood and stapled it on the other side. I used acrylic paint to do the stamping. Are you going to try it?
Hey Kelly, i love the knitted swatch stamp and attempted to stamp on a muslin with poor results. the print wasn't defined enough. i used watery fabric spray paint. do you think this could have been the issue? i would like to use this technique on t shirts. thx
Hi Cheryl - your results were probably from the spray fabric paint - also, if you used yarn to make your stamp the liquid fabric paint may have been soaked up into the yarn. My stamps worked better after a few uses because the yarn was no longer soaking up the paint - then dried and become a stiffer stamp. You could also try printmaking paint that you can get from a craft supply store to print your own t-shirts. :)
