Easy Printed Fabric Pencil/Pen Holder

I've been looking for a surface to print on with the Inkadinkado stamp set I bought from Ben Franklin Crafts
(found in the fabric printing section of the store).  I was excited to find the neutral colored pouch (with green leaf) from Sierra Pacific (other products shown in previous post) because I knew it was the perfect match with the Inkadinkado set. Along with the stamp set I purchased an Inkadinkado acrylic grid plate which allows me to accurately position the stamp. The ink I used was saddle brown Staz-0n.  There are many stamping inks which are permanent on fabric and say so on the ink pad cover.  I colored in the printed design with a yellow orange Sharpie pen (but it looks red). Be sure to put some paper inside the pouch before stamping and coloring to prevent the ink from bleeding through the fabric.  There are many other Inkadinkado bold, graphic stamp sets which can be used to print on the SP products.  I like that the overall look of the pencil pouch is very fall season, start-of-schoolish.  If you stretch your imagination the design sort of looks like apples....LOL!  Autumn delights to you!

Love how your pouch turned out!!! You can also use VersaCraft ink on fabric. You have to heat set it. The stamp you used is perfect for the pouch.
