Rubber Stamping To Make My Own Fabric

photo 1 (1)

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!

  1. Design your rubber stamp. You can draw your design straight onto the rubber and then carve out the negative space around your lines.
  2. Carve out your design using lino cutting tools.
  3. 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.
  4. And vuala! Beautiful fabric, ready to sew.

Only 43 days to go – and Gatehouse really needs your help! 

We have stalled at 37% of our overall target of $5,500, which is the budget to purchase 15 small business & sewing kits for women exiting street sex work.

As a mid campaign incentive Greeves St. will give a St Kilda Souvenir Cushion – hand screen printed, patch-worked with up-cycled denim and filled with down – to the next person who donates over $250 to the ​campaign.

New Products for the Greeves St. Project







Pictured above are some of the new Greeves St. products. I have been teaching our clients how to sew and screen print and it has been truly rewarding for everyone involved. Sorry i have not blogged for so so long but my tags were not sticking to my posts for some reason – let’s see if the problem has fixed itself. Love to you all. A
