I decorated a bag....a tutorial :)



Dress form on canvas bag

So I finally "made" a bag! Well, sort of anyway...[insert sheepish grin]....the bag was bought at the local dollar store [cheaper than if I were to buy fabric and sew my own bag!]. Technically speaking, I merely decorated a bag...*LOL*

Lo and behold...I made a tutorial of the entire process...*High fives all around*


I started with this canvas "dress" which I stared at for a good minute. Who would wear such an unflattering shapeless dress right? *LOL*


Maybe all it needs is a little colour? Mist to the rescue!!! :)


And maybe some embellishments? I pour out the contents of my fave Gauche Alchemy Pink Parts Mixed Media Color Kit....


Added a little design on my dress using the punchinella as a mask and distress ink (fired brick).


I pleated and handstitched a little tulle....


Added some trim and beads.... [okay I forgot to take photos in-between]

I cut some felt for the stand and just glued the entire piece to the bag using fabric glue. I'm passing it off as a baby girl's dress form...*LOL*

WOw this is fabulous Yvonne! I love seeing people who do this kind of work - I will sew anything like a dress,etc but when it comes to "crafty" things like this I balk but then when I see someone else do it I'm so jealous that it's not my "thing!" Love it and know it will draw attention wherever you go!
