Magic Stamped Scarf

Magic Stamped Scarf

You can make this embossed scarf by either decorating a store bought scarf or using some Cotton/Silk or Rayon velvet to make your own.

What you need

Butterfly rubber craft stamp
18 inch x 60 inch (45cm x 152cm)of Velvet
Water spray bottle


You will make your own scarf by sewing a 1/2 inch(2 cm) hem around the 18 inch x 60 inch (45 cm x 152 cm)piece of velvet.

You can also use velvet tops, books and bags to make these fun embossing shapes.

Place the stamp rubber side up and place the velvet down onto the stamp with the velvet side facing the rubber, the back of the fabric will be facing you.

Butterfly Stamp

Butterfly Stamp

Heat your iron to high or the wool setting.

Once you have the fabric in the correct position lightly mist the back of the fabric with your water spray bottle.

Fabric over Stamp


Then using the iron press the iron onto the stamp and press firmly for about 15 seconds. Depending on your fabric it might take a little longer.

Iron on the Butterfly Stamp


You can always try a test piece if you have some scraps left over from making your scarf, otherwise just take a peep.

Allow it to cool then move the fabric over to another section ready for another embossed shaped. And repeat the process until you are happy with the design.

We placed butterflies all over our scarf at random places and angles.

You can use any large craft stamp for this project, just find one you love and emboss away!!


  1. what setting do you put the iron on?

  2. I done this craft in 1999 It is so cool I made a velvet red shirt for my grandma

  3. I would think the heat would melt the stamp..

  4. This is what Mary O’Neil has demonstrated for years on the Carol Duvall Show. One thing she emphasizes is that the fabric should be a polyester and to be sure to move the iron around so the holes on the sole plate don’t leave an impression.
