    What a neat idea! Goodness knows I have plenty of fabric scraps around here to use like this. In fact I have a rather large piece of muslin that I decided against using for a drapery lining. Gotta dig it out.

    Here’s an extra tip: if you don’t want to use an iron on stabilizer (which ads thickness and alters the “hand” of the fabric), simply iron on a piece of freezer paper. It will stabilize the fabric while you do your writing/stamping and then simply tear it off when you are done.
