Stamping on Suede

Hi everyone, you will never guess what I stamped on....Suede! I wasn't sure if it could be done but the stamped image came out pretty good. To do this, I misted the right side of the suede, placed it misted side down onto my stamp. Then, you iron it for 10-20 seconds. I moved the iron around slowly so I wouldn't shift the suede. Plus, I've heard that if there are steam holes in the iron, you don't want the holes to show in your fabric. After you remove the iron, you will have a beautiful pressed image in your fabric. You can do this with velvet too.
This particular item is for my super fantastic roommate at the upcoming SU convention.....
