Has anyone ever stamped fabric? Let me know how it went!
I want to stamp a design on my Out of Town guest bags. I read that you need to use a stamp pad with fabric paint on it…not a regular stamp pad and then heat set it. However, is it possible to do with a regular stamp pad? I called around to a few stores and they dont have the fabric ink pads…and I wanted to work on them this weekend with my mom so I am afraid that I wont get it on time if I order one. I dont want to make a mess of this!

ooo me me! I have stamped on fabric but it wasn’t bags, we were decorating welcome flags to hang on doors, we had to make sure that our ink was permenant and not water based (i suppose so that it would be washable? but i don’t know) We were printing on white cotton which is what the ink suggested and it was more like a paint an less like a stamp pad. I don’t remember the brand, but my mom might, Ill email her.

@julies1949: woah, omg, that was the most helpful thing I’ve seen online….all the other sites were videos of people doing things, haha! Thank you!!
@globalmargaret: I found these paint dabbers I might try…otherwise I am a little nervous to just…use ink from a pad. How did the flags come out?

Can you just brush some fabric paint on a pallet and dip the stamp in that? I say brush so the paint isn’t too deep and won’t goop everywhere. Or brush it right on the stamp, like you would with stamps for paint on walls?

I haven’t ever stamped, but I know Miss Eagle was able to letterpress on handkerchiefs for her bridesmaids/man. This might be an option. Similarly, on a whim I heat embossed on fabric and it turned out quite well 🙂

I stamped cloth napkins with our monogram stamp with no heat setting, etc, to go under our centerpieces (the stamp is in the corner). I used a chalk-white paint that was described as for any surface, including cloth. I just let the napkins dry for about 15 minutes and then folded them up. But our stamp is not very big (2×2) and the ink not very heavy.
ETA – I cant remember the name of the ink now (FMIL has a bunch of the supplies for a different project, so I can’t even go look) – but I found it with the stamps at JoAnn.
