    Dharma is one of many good resources, but definitely not the only one. To call it the best is purely a subjuctive opinion.
    The Earth without art is just "Eh".

    Yes, muslin is cotton and also comes with a blend, check the boards they are wrapped on.

    You can learn so much here...isn't this great?!!
    Let me add to this; make sure you put a cloth between your inked design and your iron so that you don't end up with ink on your iron. I'd hate for you to get ink on your iron; they can be bears to clean.

    Thanks for the info on stamping fabric. I ordered cotton gauze to make 47" swaddle blankets for my niece's twins, due in November. She has been put on bed rest and I'm trying to come up with a few non-sewing craft projects to take her.

    She loves these Aden and Anais swaddle blankets-- http://www.adenandanais.com/shop/ite...ID=22&SKU=2027, with the little designs stamped on them. I think I will spend way more on fabric, thread, and stamping supplies than if I had bought a pack!

    BEFORE:



    AFTER: Muslin and cheaper fabric did the best. The Bella Solid faded some. Knit not shown but it faded badly.

    Interesting Sabrina... looks like muslin and cheaper fabric is best. Thank you for all you have shown here. It's very helpful.
