Pinspiration : DIY cloth bag painting

Sunday, January 19, 2014

I got my craft on today and made the first, of what I hope will be many, of the pins I've added to my  projects board on Pinterest. I hope to do at least one a month and today I chose to paint this cloth bag DIY. I'd normally link to the original website but it has been blocked by Pinterest because 'it may lead to spam, nudity or other inappropriate stuff' - you might like nudity or inappropriate stuff on your interwebs (who am I to judge?) - but I know that nobody likes spam, so no direct link.

Luckily, the photos are self explanatory, which is just as well as I bought the paint ages ago, at around the same time I made this neon necklace (July 2012). I was a little worried that the paint might have dried up but it was fine.

It took me about half an hour to paint and then, after leaving it to dry, a further 10 minutes blasting it with the hairdryer to set the paint (I could've done it with an iron but if I can avoid contact with such things I do).

It was really nice to switch off and lose myself in something for a while and I'm pleased with how it turned out. I'll be taking this with me next time I go shopping.

Have you made anything recently?
