DIY »Fabric bag with linocut stamp«


  • Pencil
  • Tracing paper
  • Stamp rubbers
  • Stamp pads
  • Carving tools
  • Cutter
  • Cloth bag
  • Iron


  1. Draw the design with a pencil on transparent paper or directly on the stamp rubber.
  2. Transferring the motif: Place the drawn motif with the painted side on the stamp rubber and press firmly with your fingers. In the pressure, the image is transferred mirror-inverted onto the rubber.
  3. Cut a motif plate of the size of the stamp pad with a cutter.
  4. Use the carving tools to cut the motif little by little. Cutting depth approx. 2 – 3 mm. Now the stamp is ready. Only the parts that have not been carved away will be printed later.
  5. Unfold the fabric bag and stamp the surface with paint. To prevent paint from seeping through the fabric, place a piece of cardboard inside the bag.
  6. Fixing: Most colors are then fixed with heat so that they are washable. For this, it is best to look at the product information of the color. In our case, we heated the bag with baking paper and an iron for 2 minutes and fixed the color.
