I have always wanted to make my own fabric so wrote it into a course as a module for the women I work with. Which means actually learning how to do it!
- Design your rubber stamp. You can draw your design straight onto the rubber and then carve out the negative space around your lines.
- Carve out your design using lino cutting tools.
- Using a roller for a consistent cover, roll fabric paint or ink onto the rubber stamp and stamp your design onto fabric. The paint I used seeped into the fabric and then you had to heat set it with an iron to make it washable.
- And vuala! Beautiful fabric, ready to sew.
