Embossing Velvet

Tonight's craft is embossing velvet. While sorting through some old Martha Stewart Christmas magazines to discard at the library, I came across an article detailing how to emboss velvet leaves to use for making Christmas wreaths and runners. Of course velvet leaves have about a trillion year-long uses in a Domythic home too.

But beyond creating leaves, you can emboss velvet and use it for pillow covers, curtains, blankets...any and all fabrics needed around the home.

A botanical rubber stamp set available on Etsy would work great for this. The seller has other stamps that would work great too.

Another great article detailing how to emboss velvet is here.
