Saw some canvas bags on the
website and thinking about the
projects that were created with
bags during the last year I just
had to buy a couple.
So glad I did. I couldn't believe
it when I came across a lovely
idea by Angela Radford and here
she is to show us what to do:
"Hi all, here today to show you what
fun I've had with Starlight Textiles Paints.
Start by masking off the areas where
you don't want the design and attach
the stencil to stop it moving.
Place a piece of card or craft mat inside
the bag to prevent the colour going through
to the back.
I sponged the colour on as I find
that works better than a brush.
When all the stencilling is complete allow it
to dry over night and then iron to fix
You could leave it like this but.....
I couldn't help it had to do some stitching
to complete the design and added ribbon
and little bells.
Hope you like my sweet little bag.
Happy crafting, Angela xXx"
Thank you Angela, I for one am
smitten with your sweet little bag!
Now folks, if like me, you don't
have any Textile paints, then you
can use any acrylic paint with
the addition of a Fabric Painting Medium
I'll let you know how I get on......!
Otherwise you know that Starlight Textile
Paints are available from the Craft Barn
PS: Don't forget the SALE
