Fabric Stamping from Rubber Stamp Tapestry

Rubber Stamp Tapestry is taking on textiles with our line of Fabric Peg Stamps and Peg Stamp Sets! These stamps were specifically designed to be used with fabric. They do, however, work just as well on paper and many stampers really get excited with the big, bold images these stamps produce on cards and other paper crafts.

Fabric projects open a whole new set of possibilities to the stamper, from quilts, pillows and curtains, to handbags, hankies and clothing and so much more! You are only limited by your imagination! Using the Component Stamping process, it's now easy to create functional items that will be cherished for generations!

Fabric Stamps are Shorter

What's Different about the Fabric Stamps?

The first thing you will notice about our new Fabric Peg Stamps is that they are shorter than our original Peg Stamps. This lets you know at a glance that these Peg Stamps are going to stamp well on fabric. Some of our original Peg Stamps may stamp well on fabric also, but when you see a short peg, you know it's been designed from the start to stamp well on this new medium.

In addition to the shorter pegs, we have also introduced a brand new size of Peg Stamp to our line: the Jumbo! Jumbo Stamps are a 1-inch (2.54cm) diameter peg, giving you an even bigger component stamping image than ever before!

You'll find the Fabric Peg Stamps feature solid, bold images which work perfectly with a fabric medium and allow you to fabric stamp with success.

What else do I need to get started?

To stamp on fabric, you will need fabric-friendly ink. Acrylic paints such as Reeves or Liquitex work well, as does Speedball brand screen printing ink.

Fabric Stamping Tips

  • Choose the Correct Substrate

    Pale shades of 100% cotton fabric will work best for fabric stamping.
  • Choose the Correct Medium

    Choose inks or paints specifically designed for fabric or textiles and follow manufacturer's instructions. Liquitex, Golden, Matisse, and others work great. It's quite disappointing to have your beautiful work wash away, so if you are unsure of the fastness of your ink or paint, always test first.
  • Prepare the Fabric

    Prewash your fabric without fabric softener to remove sizing and iron it for a smooth working surface.
  • Reinforce Your Work

    Place fabric on a flat surface. A smooth glass cutting board or piece of cardboard work great.
  • Adjust Consistency of Medium

    Spread ink or paint evenly onto a piece of foam or foam brush. If the ink or paint is too thick, spritz it lightly with water. To check the image, stamp on paper first and then on a scrap piece of fabric. Continue until your are pleased with the results.
  • Now Stamp!

    Using even pressure, lightly press the stamp onto the foam, coating the stamp, then press onto the fabric waiting a second for the fabric to absorb the paint/ink. If your medium begins to dry on the foam, simply spritz it with a fine mist of water and test again before stamping.
  • Clean Between

    Thoroughly clean your stamp between colors. You can make a cleaning solution with some water and a couple drops of mild detergent, like Granny's Spot Remover. Upholstery fabric, denim, or any coarse fabric combined with the cleaning solution makes a great stamp cleaner. A toothbrush works well for any recessed areas of the stamp.
  • Save Your Medium for Later

    If you must leave your project for a while, you may save your paint/ink for later. Simply place your foam pieces in an airtight container or plastic bag. When you are able to get back to your project, just spritz the paint/ink with water.
  • Let It Dry

    Following the ink or paint manufacturer's instructions, let your work dry completely. If your medium manufacturer suggests heat setting your work, you'll want to make sure that you don't spread wet paint/ink.
  • Heat Set Your Work

    After your work has dried completely, heat treat the images with a dry iron. Check the ink or paint manufacturer's instructions on the temperature and duration for heat setting. Some paints/inks do not require heat setting.
  • Let Your Work Rest

    Do not wash your project for at least 72 hours. Some manufacturers suggest waiting 4 days. Follow your ink/paint manufacturer's recommendations for best results.
