Postoid People
by Arlene Stump


You may recognize these funky little creations (above and below) as Arlene's postoid people. Arlene combined our postoid stamps with some of our other images to create these little people with personalities all their own.


Arlene began by stamping the images on unbleached muslin with Fabrico ink. She then applied color with acrylic paints (textile paints may also be used) and added various beads, charms, buttons, feathers or hair and other embellishments. (She encourages you to be creative and use all those crazy little finds you've been hoping to put to good use!) Use scissors to cut out a loose shape around your person and a matching piece of material for the backing. (Stamp and color the back also if you wish.) One of the great things about this project is that it does not involve any sewing! Arlene used Beacon Liqui-Fuse she purchased at a fabric store to seal the seams. Before sealing closed all the way around leave an opening on one end and stuff your person with a little quilt batting. Seal the last bit of fabric closed and trim away any stray threads, etc. Attach a safety pin to the back and surprise somebody special with their own unique postoid person pin...it's sure to make them smile!
