Hello everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. The weather was perfect in Cambridge, so I worked on some shop orders and my autumn/fall mantel projects in the garden. More on that soon…..
There’s also been a little update in my Etsy store! The Russian Doll rings are back. Each one is handmade using fabric covered buttons and the silver coated rings are adjustable.
You can see the other rings in my store here. Each one is only £4 and will be gift wrapped.
If you don’t have a Paypal account do not fear, you can now pay for items from my Etsy store using a credit card.
It’s been a while since I have done a DIY post, so I thought I would share with you an easy craft today for this Hand Stamped Star Pattern Cowl.
You will need:
- A cowl (mine was viscose material)
- A stamp of your choice
- Versacraft ink (available from most hobby stores)
- An iron
Simply lay your cowl or scarf out and begin to stamp! I laid paper underneath my material as it was fairly thin and the ink did soak through a little.
I didn’t use a pattern, just random stamping on the scarf. I reapplied the ink a little each time I stamped, to ensure an even pattern each time.
Once all the ink is dry (and make sure it is, or you will have smudges), heat seal the ink by ironing over the patterns.
And now your customised Hand Stamped Cowl is ready to wear! You can try different patterns to suit you of course.
If you like this star pattern, please do visit my Etsy store to find these new rings listed! All hand stamped onto cream calico fabric.
Which colour is your favourite? I am really looking forward to experimenting with more hand stamped items for my store. Watch this space!
