Stencilled Shopping Tote

A lot of family and friends are celebrating their birthdays this month.
So it is time to make gifts.
Decorating this cotton canvas tote was quick and it was fun.
You don't need a lot of supplies and there are so many
different ways with paint, oil paint sticks, Sharpie markers,
Ribbon, lace, buttons and.....
Always have a piece of fabric at hand that you can practice
your skills and colour combinations on.

If you think it looks a bit plain, zoosh it up with
a little bit of French ribbon,

If you want to die the tote, wash it to get rid of all the starch.
Then die it while it is wet. Colours blend better on wet fabric.

Have a good week.
Create and have some fun!
