They’re Quick, Fun and Lovely Finishing Touches!

Fabric postage stamps are so pretty and add a bit of whimsy to any quilted project. We’ve seen them on bags, pouches, mug rugs, fabric envelopes, and more.

Plus they’re so easy to make and can even become addictive. They’re perfect for those little bits of pretty fabric you’ve been hanging on to.

How to Make Pretty Stamps from Bits of Fabric

Start by fussy cutting motifs from fabric scraps. Use fusible web to adhere them to white fabric. Add fusible web to the back of the white so the finished stamp is ready to be applied to your project. Then cut around the outside with pinking shears or a scalloped rotary cutter blade.

Simple! And so much fun. Kellie from Ma & Me Designs provides detailed instructions at the following link. She recommends using HeatnBond UltraHold for the fusible web.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
