Why not give it a try -
I scanned a card of a water colour painting a friend had created of a butterfly on
a flower, transferred it to a bag, then painted over most of it with acrylic paint, using
white and black pens to accentuate the legs and 'feelers'. It looked lovely just
as a transfer, but as it was a gift to the artist, I wanted it to look as though
she had just painted it -
Hessian or jute bags are lovely to paint on with acrylic paints -
I can vouch for how wonderful it is to receive a gift like this, as Lottie made the
bag on the left here for me. The photo she has used is from one of my favourite holidays,
and is of two of my children on a rock at a Danish beach on a really wild evening
I keep it hanging in my craft room -
It is so easy to decorate a 'bag for life' and each one you do can be totally original.
I have used both cotton and jute bags -
The easiest and quickest way to decorate a bag is to use image transfer paper -
It really is so simple. you print out your image, wording, or design onto the transfer
