stamping up some tees

I’ve been a stampin’ fool lately, guys! I do not know how it took me so long to do this….I’ve stamped fabric before, but carving your own stamps opens up a whole new world of creativity and options! (cue: Aladdin…..)  Suffice it to say, I am having way too much fun. Count on a little how to post for carving stamps, soon! Until then…here’s what I stamped and sewed up for my biggest and littlest.

I’m not sure what’s going on in the photo above, but it was so….Sadie…that I had to post it. That girl!

Anyways, so I stamped some dark grey triangles onto some peach knit (from Girl Charlee), and used that for the yoke and sleeve cuffs. I love how this turned out! I think she’s a fan, too!

My little Avie girl got a top of her own, too! Carved and stamped some little bows all over some cream knit (again, from Girl Charlee…dude, love their knits), then sewed it up-it’s a little loose, but that was on purpose! I wouldn’t want my hard work to be grown out of in a month!

Ok, just go with the number of Ava photos here….indulge me. I think she’s kinda cute. 😉



  1. I like it!! and great photos!

  2. Nice ! and your kids look so adorable !

  3. Lovely T-shirts and beautiful girl!
    I’m also a fan of stamping and I love hand-carved stamps 🙂

  4. Great stamps and gorgeous photos 🙂

  5. I am in love with those bows! I’ve been carving stamps for a while and love that you can do just about anything with it. But I will say I struggle with stamping on fabric. Any tips to not get a gloopy mess? Do you paint the fabric paint onto the stamp and then stamp it?

  6. These tops are toooooo cute! I’m longing to know more about diy stamping! thanks

  7. Great you found a new obsession! Very cute! And that pic of Sadie threw me big time. All the pics make me smile. Your youngest is such a peach–you are blessed! Have a great week:)

  8. Oh my Ava is not just cute…. she is completely adorable!!!! Those eyes!!!! Thanks for sharing your amazing kiddos and craftiness!

  9. Everything is so cute!! The girls, the stamps, the shirts! Adorable!

  10. I love what you’ve done!! Did you draft the pattern for the peach top? Really awesome work!!! Can you share how you do your stamping? I tried it but my stamps didn’t come out all that great 🙁

  11. Love these! Once again you leave me wondering, Why can’t I be as cool as Jess. I need to make time for sewing.

  12. Cuuutte! Love the second picture of Sadie. And Ava is already developing those adorable cheekies! =) Love it.

  13. Funny you should post this- I had taken up stamp carving last year and thought about using my stamps on fabric. I really like the idea of using the stamped fabric as an accent, especially for those little stamps.

  14. Darling little tees! I especially love the bows 🙂

  15. I am so inspired by your posts with knit fabrics, and I am totally In LOVE with the selection at Girl Charlee, that I think I’m going to take the plunge and make some things for my nieces. I also love the pictures of your cuties (I think Ava looks just like Charlotte). I have only boys, so I appreciate the doses of girly cuteness you provide us with. LOL!

  16. Adorable tees and even more adorable girls! Love the hand stamped fabric. I really need to try it such a great idea!

  17. They’re beautiful, Jess! And Ava is getting so big! Will be looking forward to the tutorial.

  18. Oh geez, I can’t handle the cuteness of Sadies poses OR Ava’s baby blues! Just too much.

  19. You have such a great eye. Love love your prints and the peachy color of Sadie’s top!

  20. these are so awesome. I love the peach and gray combo, great clothes on such cute girls!
