Default Stamping on fabric?

Can you stamp on fabric? I'm pretty sure I've seen some pics here.

My daughter is starting a cooking class next week, and she needs an apron.
I was thinking I could maybe decorate a plain apron with stamps to personalize it! Is this possible, and should I use a special ink?

I'm thinking I probably have to use craft ink on pe-washed apron and heat set, can someone please let me know if this is right.

Thanks so much

I've stamped on fabric (tote bags, cushion covers & Tshirts mostly). You seem to have the right instructions worked out yourself. Important to wash and iron the fabric before stamping, and heat set afterwards. I usually put the item in the dryer on high for awhile after stamping and then iron it. I saw this lovely apron in the gallery awhile ago. If you're unsure of the procedure I'm sure you could PM the maker and get further instructions. Have fun, and show us the result please!
