Today is this little guys 100th day of school! For his special 100th day project we stamped 100 yellow and green of tractors on a shirt. It was the perfect project for a tractor obsessed boy! We did get a little carried away with the stamping and ended up with 103 tractors so we made a little “100″ patch to cover it up the extra 3. Do you know how many times we had to count to 100 to get it right? It was my first time working with Versa Craft fabric ink pads. Surprisingly they were super easy to work with and a lot of fun. Its still kinda crazy how easy they were to do. Its one of those things that seem too good to be true. The only problem we ran into was when my little guy wanted to fix some of his not so perfect stamps. I had a hard time getting the ink off the shirt then. But I also did not follow directions and wash the shirt first. So next time I will wash first and then see if mistakes are easily removed. Once he was finished stamping I went over the whole shirt with a hot iron to set in the ink. Then with my fingers crossed I through the whole shirt in the washer and honestly I did not see a difference in the before or after. I even purposely did not iron 3 of the tractors to see if they would wash off in the washer, but they didn’t. In case you were wondering the tractor stamp was purchased from Sweet Stop Stamp Shop on etsy, super cute right? We will definitely be working with fabric ink pads again. The ideas are endless, plus they are such a fun and easy project for the kiddos to do…and of course for us as well!
How many of you have stamped on fabric before? Any other fun ideas for the 100th day of school?
