stamp it out!

To break up the dressmaking sequence i wanted to post another wee quick craft that i'm also doing at the minute. I make the little stamps out of normal rubbers (erasers for the US peeps!) and just draw the design (IN REVERSE!) on the rubber in normal pen and then cut away all the white areas with a normal craft knife, or sharp kitchen knife.

It's surprising how accurate you can be! The rubber is very soft so the finished stamps can be easily damaged,but if you look after them they will last indefinitely.
I use mine for making designs on fabric or for stamping personalised napkins for special parties. I've also made quite a few for giving away as wee pressies.
