As a present for my friends newborn baby, I carved out stamps out of erasers. One with the name of their baby and two with little chicks. I've used them on a baby jumper, a little hat and a pair of socks. The ink I've used is ColorBox Chalk, which can be used on textile and sets when ironed. The details on the little chicks are made with a textile marker.





Eraser carving is so easy to do. I've first drawn the name with pencil on a piece of paper. To transfer the image to an eraser I've put the paper (image side down) on the eraser and used a pencil to color in the back. You could of course draw on the eraser itself right away, but as the name has to be mirrored this way is easier. Next I've used a lino cutter set to cut away all the parts that doesn't have to be inked. To make sure everything looked right I've first made a few proof stamps on a piece of paper.
