If you're like me, when I get near the end of a project, I get all kinds of excited and tend to start hurrying. One thing you shouldn't do though is hurry when you're stamping on a project that took a bit to make since things can go horribly wrong with ink on fabric if you're not careful!
That's exactly the sort of thing I've done more than I care to say, so this last time it happened, I decided to learn from it and change things up a bit and wanted to share this quick tip with you all.
If you have a paper piecing pattern that you want to stamp on, if at all possible, do the stamping first. Just cut a piece of fabric larger than you will need and then stamp your words or image.
Then, when it comes time to put that piece in, determine the positioning of the piece by holding it up to the light and making sure the stamping is where you want it before you sew.
Kerry and I are at the tail end of finishing our first pattern set and will both be posting a tutorial here on Sew-Ichigo, using the patterns. More to come very soon!
