Common household items such as corrugated cardboard, safety fencing, food packaging, cookie cutters and old textured dishes are all potential stamps for a quilting project. Look for raised surfaces in appealing shapes and patterns, and test them on paper before applying them to your quilt. Here's the simple process:
Materials and Tools:
1. Place fabric on a layer of batting.
2. Pour fabric paint onto a plate.
3. Dip found objects into paint and stamp on the fabric.
Use this discharge process to transfer shapes to fabric for a dramatic effect.
