Write and stamp on fabric. Here's how:
Tips for success
* Iron fabric stabilizer (available from your local fabric shop) to the material to stiffen it, making it easier to write and stamp on.
* Fine-tipped pens or markers work best for writing on fabric because they release less ink, which means there is less ink to spread through fabric fibers as a "feathered" or "bleeding" look.
* Don't worry about the ink on the fabric looking perfect-imperfection is part of its charm.
