rainy day projects

the weather here today is terrible, it hasn't stopped storming since early this morning. my plans for being on the road will have to wait so i got busy with a fun favor for a good friend and baby onesies. my friends' granddaughter is starting nursery and needed some mat covers. i appliqued a crown on some leopard fabric for one, ribbons on another, and then her name on the third. i delivered the first two because school was starting today but finished the last just now. bright, fun colors for a bright, fun little girl!!

and.....i finally found my fabric inkpads that i had ordered from palette. i knew they were hiding somewhere in my sewing room, but i overlooked them for about two months. the grandbabies were fixin' to outgrow the onesies before i could decorate them!

this was so much fun! i'll want to stamp everything now. hmmm, i wonder if i could get away with doing something on my dh's shirts. maybe like a warning of some kind. those who know him know exactly what i mean.  now i need to make a crown for gk for a bday party tomorrow. i think i'll do one out of fabric so it'll be soft for her head. i'll take a pic when i'm through to share.

Love those stamped baby things. I would like to do stamping, but I have never started it. I admire the stamp art pieces my friends have done. I have seen beautiful cards etc. from stamping. Maybe one day.

Take care, Jeanne

What type ink do you use for the clothing stamps? STAZON?? I make greeting cards and never thought to use them on cloth!! I am ASTOUNDED!
