Here is an idea on how to vamp up simple nursery bedding. It's easy and you're little one is going to enjoy having flecks of "thingies" on their sheets.
You will need some fabric - textile ink. There's the simple solution of using pre-soaked textile ink pads ( I like VersaCraft). If you can not find them, there is an easy way to make an ink pad yourself.
You will need:
- square piece of felt
- an empty plastic CD case
- textile ink
- a few flecks of salt
Mix your ink to a coor and tint of your choice inside a CD case. When you have made the colour, add a few flecks of salt. Just a few. I don't know why, but salt seems to make the paint to a thinner consistency. Wait a few seconds and mix again.
Now place a piece of white felt cloth on top of the ink blob and press lightly. Voila, now you have a custom made fabric ink pad.

Now take your stamp ( you can find amazing handmade stamps on Etsy.com), press it on your custom made ink pad and then onto the sheet or bedding of your choice. You can go random or in a repeat pattern.
When you're finished, most textile paints require you to iron the to set. After this is done, they are washable and the color last forever.
