Printed Gauze fabric
5. Now is a good time to take a quick test run of your stamp on some paper. Once you're satisfied, coat your stamp with paint using a sponge applicator or paint brush. I liked the idea of using black against this cream colored gauze.
6. Now prepare your fabric to be stamped by spreading it out and putting paper underneath.
7. Now stamp, applying even pressure and gently rocking back and forth to get a good image. Make sure to reapply paint in between each stamping.
Note: I didn't plan for the feather to have the variations you see above with the paint being lighter on some prints, but I really like how it turned out.
8. Once your whole blankie is stamped go around the edges with either a serger or a zig-zag stitch on a regular sewing machine.
And your done! I really like how the swaddle blanket turned out and I hope you love the tutorial. When I showed B the blanket he had no idea I printed it, he thought I was showing him some new fabric I bought. I think this could also be made into a killer gauze-y type scarf!
