I pulled out my rubber stamps and then tried to recall how to do it. Do I wet the front side of the velvet or the back side and then press?
|Simple rubber stamp from the 80's|
|New iron. Woot!|
However, there was another detail I was forgetting.
I had this nagging feeling that the velvet to be embossed had to be rayon or acetate or something other than cotton which was the type of velvet I was using. But hey, it embossed. I must have been mistaken.
|Where did the 80's go?|
Well, when I finished assembling the little purse, the embossing had disappeared into the nap. I was right. This method of embossing doesn't work well on cotton velvet.
|Hide it with a big fake flower.|
|Gotta love fat q's|
Or maybe it should read Give Up Now!
Well, I'm growing weary of heart shaped purses and besides, I really don't have nice looking Valentines Day-ish looking fabric.
Therefore, it must be a sign that I need to move on. A bunch of patterns that I ordered from Oliver + S patterns arrived in the mail yesterday and I'm keen to try them out.
