What better way to spend a Sunday evening than with the X -Factor and a CD Sunday Challenge? This week their challenge was 'Shop till you drop', and I thought I'd try decorating a plain shopping bag - something I've been meaning to try for ages.
First though, I had to find a suitable image. I avoided the Frou Frou CD because several of the DT had used it, but in the end I just had to go for it as I couldn't find anything I felt was more apt.
I mixed red and white fabric paint together and sponged them through a mask. Then I printed the shop image onto inkjet printable fabric cotton, and cut it out. At this point I should have got out my sewing machine...but I knew if I got it out, threaded it up, etc etc ... I'd never get the thing finished. So I cheated and glued it down with Mod Podge and let's hope it never needs washing!
As well as CD Sunday, I'd like to enter:
Altered Eclectics Anything goes
Lexi's Creations Anything but a card.
