Signing My Work

One of the delights of all the beautiful caskets we viewed in Scotland and England last fall was discovering the occasional signature, note or trinket left behind by the creator of the piece.
One of the ways I have decided  to sign my casket is with a bundle of letters on the front. Eventually they will be tucked into a pile of thread spools and needles and pins.
But how do you make tiny silk letters?

I created my 'letters' in Photoshop, printed them out on silk printer ready fabric, then coated them with a gloss varnish. I hope the varnish will keep the silk from fraying.
