|Best Kid Craft - Hand Stamped Fabrics|
My 3-year old son loves craft!! I always look for some fun and easy craft projects for him (possible for both of us can do together).
Last couple weeks, I read a lot of Japanese Craft Books and Magazines, I found a few sewing projects which they hand stamped the fabrics for decoration. Since I saw that, I am so fascinated about hand stamped fabrics. I didn't know what kind of ink pad required for the fabrics, I was worried that it may be some expensive ink pad. So I did more research and found this website, she tested several ink pads in her blog. And I found out my local JoAnn has clearance for few of the ink pads that mentioned on her blog. Of course, I bought one set to test out.
I used my Muslim fabrics that sitting in my fabric drawers for years. Then I gave my son a lot of stamps and different colors of ink pad. He had so much fun to stamping on the fabrics.
After he is done with stamping, I let it dry overnight. The next day, I set the fabric with the hot iron. The fabrics looks very nice and it has an earthy feel. Then I used this hand stamped fabrics to sew a little bag for him, so he can put his toys.

The bag came out nicely! My son was very excited and very proud of himself (and me)! lol
I also enjoy doing it with my son! We both have fun! And now I am so addicted to hand stamped fabrics, I ended up go went to JoAnn and got more Memento Ink Pad Sets (different colors, they are less than $3) and a lot of stamps!! I just made a hand stamped fabric container. I will post pictures soon.
