Grungy Bag Decoration by Carol Fox


 
 

 

This week I have made a little bag decoration. It’s made with Grunge Paper and sticky back canvas.

 

Here’s how I made it.

 

·       Stick three squares of sticky back canvas onto Grunge Paper. I then die cut three flowers from this, you can also draw and cut the shapes with scissors.
 

·       Stamp the tentacle image from the sheet onto your flower shapes using the black Archival ink, heat set.
 

·       Paint the shapes with the Fresco paint, using a stiff brush and dry brushing it on, layer and mix the paint as you go.
 

·       Edge with the black paint dabber.
 

·       Using either a sewing machine or hand stitching, run a line of black stitching round the edge of all the pieces.
 

·       Heat with a heat gun and while still warm, bend the petals a little bit.


·       Layer up the shapes and stitch through all the layers to hold them together.
 

·       Add a short length of beaded trim to the back so it dangles down below the flower, add another short length to attach it to the handle of your bag.


·       Finally finish by sewing a button to the centre.
