I have been sewing so much for myself lately in preparation for Alt Summit, that it put me in a bit of a rut. A sewing damper if you will. I missed my true sewing passion, sewing for my kiddos!
So after putting on my thinking cap, and browsing for a little Pinspiration, I got to work. I knew immediately I wanted to hand stamp something, what can I say – I just love painting on fabric! It really makes me feel like I ‘created’ something by tapping into my artistic side.
And with all of this fabulous oatmeal linen on hand, it was an easy choice. I am just really drawn to modern, clean, and simple lines lately. Easy style, classic taste, with a modern twist. I am pretty much in love with how this dress turned out, and as with most things I make – it really couldn’t be simpler.
Let me show you how to make this easy hand stamped heart dress. Starting with hand stamping some fabric! I like to add a touch of water to my fabric paint, not much – just a little bit. I tend to think it makes the paint a little less stiff when going on the fabric.

And there you have it, a super cute and easy handmade & handstamped dress that both you and your kids will love.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and until next time…
