Hello, it’s Kari here today with a fun project involving STAMPING on FABRIC! I will show you how to make a no-sew holiday gift bag with the “All I Want for Christmas” stamp set. I absolutely fell in love with the Sleigh Rides stamp from this set, and I couldn’t stop making with it.
The Surprise I found!
It’s no surprise that I LOVE the Remarkable Eclipse Black in from Maker Forte. What’s not to love? It stamps beautiful, crisp sentiments and images, it works with Copic Coloring, and it works with watercoloring.
But I also found out that it STAMPS ON FABRIC beautifully!! YAY! I was so excited about this and I just had to share it with you. So I created the video below sharing all the details. [NOTE: I have not tried washing this, and wasn’t planning on washing this project…so I am not sure if it will survive through a washing machine. If you try it, please let me know!]

For this project, I got some muslin fabric from Hobby Lobby as well as Heat and Bond (this is for the no-sew part)! I cut out the size of muslin I needed to just fit the Sleigh Ride stamp. I also cut the Heat and bond and affixed it to the muslin BEFORE stamping. This makes the fabric easier to stamp on.
Then I put the muslin in the misti and stamped the image multiple times. The result is beautiful and a little bit rustic…which is great to go with the red burlap bag. I just love the extra threads on this…you can even pull more threads around the edge of the muslin if you want!
Next, I pulled off the paper from the back of the Heat and Bond so I could iron it onto the red burlap bag. I had this bag in my stash already, but it would be a simple bag to sew, too.
Before I ironed on the muslin, I added a folded piece of computer paper INSIDE the bag so it would assist in ironing it on (and prevent from potentially ironing the bag closed).
It worked like a dream!
I filled it with some See’s Candies and tied it up with a green ribbon. I added the starlight mint tag from this project and VOILA! All done!
I hope you enjoyed these projects today! Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel while you are there…I will be uploading the video on how to make this book project soon!
