Stamping fabric is a fun way to incorporate quick detail to your project. I love to have several small items made up for last minute gifts for friends. These tissue covers are a unique item that can't easily be found in stores. Ladies always like to have tissues in their bag and they look even prettier when contained in a beautiful cover.
Once I found a sewing pattern online that was easy to follow, I used a stamp I had on hand and an ink that was able to be heat set. Make sure you look at your ink stamp to verify this. When I had the design on the fabric, I used my iron to help it stay put.
I had so much fun doing the tissue covers that I made a little zipper bag also.
You can make so many different things using your stamps and fabrics that it may become an obsession for a while. I moved on to making several bookmarks.
It really does make you feel satisfied to have a bundle of cute personal gifts ready to give. No occasion is necessary. Remember that sometimes when you are feeling down, giving something of yourself will immediately make you feel better! Just try to feel bad after seeing the smile on the receivers face.
I hope you have enjoyed this post, share what you have learned and are generous with what you make. Someone will appreciate your hard work!
