This week I taught some of my friends how to stamp on fabric, so I got to make some of my own. I haven't stamped in awhile and I forgot how much I love it. I really enjoy creating my own prints. And this is my only contribution to Kid's Clothes Week because we're moving in a week. Hopefully I'll be able to sew with this fabric in the next month!
I stamped this soft striped peach jersey that I have used in multiple pieces. First I stamped some bright blue whales. It didn't feel quite finished so I used some gold and stamped some anchors. I really love this fabric. It's only about half of a yard so I'll probably make and outfit for Claire. I'm thinking leggings and maybe a tunic or dress. It depends on how much I have left I guess! What knit top or dress patterns do you love for babies?
My SIL made this skirt more than a year ago and gave it to me when she was tired of it. I wore it and then got tired of it. I decided to stamp some dark gray walruses on it. I'm thinking a long-sleeved top for myself for this winter. A simple design so that the walruses and stripes can shine.
This last one I haven't decided how I feel about it yet. I cut open a men's blue t-shirt. I wanted to stamp a word so I chose Aaah because it's something kids say. I stamped in black first, then a bright blue so the black is like an echo. I wanted to make it more readable so I added some light blue dots as the negative space in the letters. I don't think it's that readable. I love the idea, but I don't think it was executed that well. What do you think?
