Hello Floral Canvas Shopping Bag

Making your own shopping bag or even for a friend or family is such a nice gift and very useful too. This quick project is a mixture of techniques and even a great one to do with the kids.

You will need:

  • Hello Stencil from Glitzcraft
  • Spatula
  • Canvas or Calico Shopping Bag
  • Coral and Blue Glitter Paste – Glitzcraft
  • Colour coordinating fat quarters of fabric – Pinflair
  • Buttons in matching colours
  • Floral Dies from The Paper Boutique
  • Card or board to place inside the bag whilst stencilling
  • Needle and cotton
  • Scissors
  • Die Cutting Machine

Time to Make: 2 hours

Skill Level: Intermediate

Step-by-step:

  1. Stencil the ‘Hello’ floral Glitzcraft stencil straight on to the bag, place a piece of card of board inside the bag just to protect the other side in case the glitter paste seeps through the bag fabric. Allow the paste to dry completely before fixing your flowers in place.

  1. Whilst the paste is drying, you can start to create your flower embellishments for the bag. I have used a selection of fabrics from Pinflair which matched the Glitzcraft pastes that I used, they have lots of fat quarters available on the website. I have used The Paper Boutique Floral dies to die cut the outer flower shapes from the fabric, I chose 2 sizes and cut several of each out so I could play with the layout.

  1. I picked out some buttons which matched the colour scheme and used them as the centre of the flowers for more dimension. Once the paste is completely dry, take your needle and thread and start to stitch your flower embellishments on the bag design, try mixing the designs and patterns around and even just sew the buttons on the bag too for a different feel.

    This project is very versatile as there are lots of stencils and fabrics on the market, this would make a great workshop project or even for small businesses to sell at markets too.
