I've recently discovered Versacraft ink pads and I can see a whole new obsession in the making. These ink pads means you can stamp all kinds of designs on fabric which can then be heat set using your iron.
I used them to personalise these pencil cases recently and I'm really quite tricked with the whole idea.
Recently I was lucky enough to win tickets to the Hobbycrafts show at the SECC from the Glasgow Craft Mafia blog. Myself and my friend and her daughter spent a whole day wondering around a zillion stalls selling mostly paper crafting materials. To be honest I was a bit lost as to what to do with everything so I didn't buy that much. There was one fabric stall which I might have visited ;) plus quite a few stalls full of ribbons and buttons but it was mostly paper crafting stuff.
My budget wasn't exactly huge (understatement of the year) so with my last quid I bough a teeny tiny alphabet stamp set. I didn't have anything in particular in mind other than it was quite cute and it was cheap as chips. However now that I've used it I can see lots of fabric stamping in my future. One day I'd love to carve my own or revisit cutting stencils that were so much fun for Jamie's dotty outfit. Also I could use my Sizzix Big Shot to cut out freezer paper stencils too. Hmmmm there's lots of possibilities with this.
I'll need to fill you in on the Big Shot as I didn't get round to blogging it back in September when I got it. Anyway that's for another day and I better get this posted before the internet packs in again. You wouldn't believe the hassle we've had the last week with our broadband, it's been driving me nuts.
Bye for now
