How do I apply Napkins to fabric with Fabric Mod Podge®?
  1. Cut the design out of the Napkin and discard the layers. Place Napkin upside down on a piece of parchment or wax paper.

  2. Apply Fabric Mod Podge® to the back of the design.

  3. Place the Napkin and paper face-up on the fabric where desired, and press firmly but gently to the surface with your fingertips. Remove the paper carefully and press the design firmly again.

  4. Apply a second coat of Fabric Mod Podge® with the Textile Brush, working into the Napkin with a gentle, swirling motion. Clean the brush often when the ink of the Napkin bleeds.

  5. Cure for 72 hours.

  6. Wash in cold water by hand or gentle cycle. Dry flat or line dry.
What is the best way to decoupage fabric cut-outs to my fabric project?
First, prepare your project surface. Then using the Martha Stewart Crafts Soft Bristle Decoupage Brushes, apply one even, smooth coat of Martha Stewart Crafts Fabric to Fabric Decoupage Finish to the area on the selected fabric surface that you would like to decoupage.
For the strongest bond, allow it to dry slightly (about 2-3 minutes) before placing your decoupage fabric cut-out. To place your decoupage fabric cut-outs, apply a smooth, even coat of Martha Stewart Crafts Fabric to Fabric Decoupage Finish to the backside and place onto the pre-decoupaged surface. Use your fingers, a Martha Stewart Craft Squeegee or a Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage Brayer to press fabric onto the surface. Smoothing from the center towards the edge of the fabric to remove air bubbles and excess decoupage finish. Wipe away excess decoupage with a damp paper towel. Once in place and smoothed, allow to dry 2 hours. When completely dry, brush a smooth application of Martha Stewart Crafts Fabric to Fabric Decoupage Finish over the fabric cut-out, making sure to seal the edges of the fabric (extend your decoupage at least ¼-inch past the outline of your fabric cut-out or fabric lace trim to ensure that it is sealed). Allow to dry 2 hours and repeat. If decoupaged item will serve a purpose other than decorative, a third application of Martha Stewart Crafts Fabric to Fabric Decoupage Finish is recommended. To cure, air dry project for 72 hours in a mild dry room. To expedite curing, allow project to dry a minimum of 24 hours, then iron (no steam) using a pressing cloth with a small weave on low-medium setting for 30 seconds in a small circular motion. Do not use a towel as a pressing cloth, as it can leave marks or stick to the decoupaged project. You can also force dry in a dryer on the highest setting for 1 hour. Once cured, fabric project can be hand washed or machine-washed on a gentle cycle using cool water and mild detergent. Do not use fabric softener.
Is it necessary to heat set my block printed project when using Fabric Creations™ Soft Fabric Ink?
Heat setting is recommended for best durability.
Heat set the painted surface using a dry, hot iron and a pressing cloth. Lay pressing cloth over the stamped fabric and iron the stamped design for 30 seconds, lift the iron and move it to another section of the stamped design. Your iron should be set at the highest setting allowed for the decorated fabric, no steam.

What is the best way to apply Fabric Creations™ Soft Fabric Ink to block printing stamps?
We recommend using our Fabric Creations™ Sponge Cubes.
Simply squirt a generous amount of Soft Fabric Ink onto a foam plate or palette. Load the sponge cube by firmly holding it in your hand, then dabbing into the puddle of ink. Off-load excess fabric ink onto a clean spot on the plate and then apply ink to the stamp design using a soft, pouncing up and down motion. Continue pouncing over stamp until the entire raised design is covered.
