I know I’d seen it before and the bold images from Prickley Pear are just perfect for it, so after a little Googling, I decided to go for it. I purchased some velvet, pulled out some stamps, and held my breath. Here’s the final results:
Not too bad, huh? And it was so super easy to do. Here’s a breakdown of how I did it:
First, I cut my velvet down to the size I would need for my sachet.
Then I made sure my iron had a spot on the plate that did not have any holes and I emptied out the water from the reservoir. I turned it up to high and let it heat up.
And voila, you are done. Now you can take your fabric and make it into sachets, drawstring bags, scarves, etc.
The bolder the image, the better your results will be. Although I was pleasantly surprised at how well the detail of the stamp appeared on the velvet.
Now that I know how easy it is, I’d love to try this with some large background stamps and make some cute throw pillows. What project will you make?
