Fabric Stamping

I've had a very busy summer.  My son is sleeping on the couch after being with a friend.  Kids are so cute when they are sleeping.  I guess I was nicknamed the crafty mom for his class.  So, for the end of year gifts we did bags for them to put stuff in.  I stamped their names on each bag, but you know that's never enough.
Here's what I used:
Lumiere paint
The Angel Company™ alphabet stamp set
Stencils cut using my Cricut
Art Institute fabric glue and glitter

My son's name is very short but I had others that were very long which is why I chose that particular alphabet.  I dabbed Lumiere paint onto the stamps to make their names.  I love spellling their names onto the block and stamping it all at once.  The lizard is done using a cricut cartridge (Life's a beach I think).  I cut it out of plastic, laid it on the fabric, and filled it in with fabric glue.  I then sprinkled the glitter all over the lizard shape.  The Falcon was done using Make the Cut™.  I cut the falcon out of plastic and then painted the inside of the stencil.  I used the end of my brush to make the eye.  I was very happy that the kids loved them.
