After experimenting and lots of trial and error, I created Fabric Stamped Pendants! They are so addicting to make! I used fabric Mod Podge for the glue and sealer and top coated them with Dimensional Magic. The Dimensional Magic gives the pendant the hard gloss finish.
Rubberstamp (we used a key image)
Scrap Fabric (light color)
Fabric Ink Pad
Eyelet and Setter
Chain Chain Chain: chain, jumprings and clasp
Measure the height and width of your stamped image. Add 1” to the height measurement. Double the width and add 1” to the measurement. Cut a piece of fabric to this size.
Working on one edge, rubberstamp your image to the fabric. Allow to dry 4 hours or heat set with an iron.
Apply a very thin coat of fabric Mod Podge to the back of the fabric. Fold the fabric over so the edges meet. Let dry for 4 hours. Very Important!
Coat the front and back of the fabric with a thin coat of Mod Podge. Let dry for 4 hours.
Cut around your stamped image, leaving a small border.
Add an eyelet to the top center.
Add a even layer of Dimensional Magic to the top of the stamped image. Let dry 5 hours in a non-drafty location.
Glue gems to the top of the design.
Cut a length of chain to fit your neck. Using pliers attach a clasp to each end of the chain with jump-rings. Thread a jump-ring through the eyelet and attach to the center of the chain. Add more jump-rings to create a longer dangle pendant. Add a bow to the top of the pendant.
Enjoy and make tons!
