Did a bit of looking around and found this awesome link at Crafttestdummies.com where somebody was gracious enough to compare the clarity and washability of 12 different stamp pads on fabric
|assembly and initial test stamping onto Ikea sheeting|
I was excited about the letter stamps until I opened them to find out that they came in three pieces - sticky letter label for the top, wood stamp piece & sticky backed stamps of the letters themselves. Aligning the stamp's orientation to the letters on top was amazingly difficult for ME at least, but eventually I got everything "straight enough".
I was nervous about the mysterious process of heat setting the labels so they wouldn't bleed in the wash, but it turned out to be pretty simple. I chose these ones.
- stamp fabric
- let ink dry
- iron both sides of fabric for about two minutes
- wait a week before laundering
I think it'll be a blast to start plastering my name all over everything I make, otherwise I might forget who made all this weird looking crap all over my house
I may buy cloth tape at some point to us at a later date, but for now I'm just experimenting on fabric. Ikea sheet scraps had horrible ironing issues, Kona cotton seems to work fine. It's taking some trial and error to not overlap letters, but it's fun to play around with them. Bad thing is I'm getting this overwhelming urge to go buy some kitty stamps too.
