Fall holidays are fast approaching. This is a quick and easy Treat bag (it's also just the right size to stash a gift card).
a piece of canvas about 7in x 3.75in (Canvas Corp)
wire and assorted fibers
circle stencil (circles sized at 3/4 inch - I made mine using my eclips, ecal and a transparency from my local office supply store)
Make sure that your work surface is covered to protect from any overspray. If you're using a Sharpie, be sure that you work in a well ventilated area too.
Set your marker in the eBrush using the SP labeled adapter and make sure that your stencil is in place. I just held mine down, but if you're doing a larger piece of fabric, you might want to use some repositionable spray adhesive or painter's tape to hold it in place. Using side to side sweeps, fill the circles with your color. I used black on this example, but you might want to try some other fun colors that go with your particular theme.
Once you've finished filling in the circles, you can remove the stencil. Let the fabric dry for several hours. Iron to heat set the color. I used cotton, no steam. With wrong sides together, stitch the 3.75 inch sides together using a 1/4 in seam allowance. Finger press the seam to one side. Center the seam in the back and stitch along the bottom of what will become your bag with a 1/4 in seam. Carefully turn the bag right side out and make sure that bottom is square along the corners.
Wrinkle up a little bit of paper and stuff into the bag and put a fine line of fray check on the open edge of the bag. Let dry for about 24 hours.
Embellish as desired. I used a stamp (Stampin Up! now retired) to create the tag and added a wire handle, some ribbons, fibers and tulle and some stickles for a little sparkle.
Thanks for dropping by! Enjoy a happy crafting and creative day!
