My Painted Fabric Bag

Well here it is...

I decided to make it into a bag. The lighting here is not that good today as we have heavy rain going on. So the colour isnt captured that well.
Anyway I am very very pleased with the finished product.
The front and back fabric on the bag is what I made in my Fabric Art Class on Wednesday. The process was stamping the white cotton with stamps made from polystyrene.. Painted with normal acrylic paint...left to day and then a transparent coloured paint washed over the top ... While it was trying I sprayed it with a green aging dying which really bought the colours out. The wash paint I used was metalic so there is a lovely glitter all over the fabric.
I then embellished with the stamped fabric I made in class. I made the folded roses and gathered up the ribbon and added some beads
A closer look at the front

The back of the bag... This is stamped with the polystyrene stamp too and then I have gone over some of it with a bronze metalic paint... I have added a few beads along the way.

A closer look

I have also started a couple of BOM's one of the being the one made from the French General fabric by Moda. Ohhh Im pleased with the first block ... These fabrics are gorgeous. Im doing a similar quilt to Full of Hearts but I am doing flowers instead... and Im adding extra things into it as well.

So Im off to do some stitching. The weather here is terrible but we are pleased that the drought we have been having is now broken.. so who's can complain.

Have a lovely weekend

Gosh Lisa, that bag is truly amazing. Well done, what a satified feeling it must be to have achieved such a wonderful outcome.

Lisa, what a wonderful bag!! You have got me thinking now. I was an ex-Stampin' Up dealer and have many stamps sets but has since moved onto quilting and textile arts, so I don't use them. Your recent blog posts about using rubber stamps on fabric has inspired me to get out the old sets and incorporate some pieces into the crazy patch quilt I'm making. Thanks so much for sharing - I really enjoy your blog. Regards, Irene Lowe, Melbourne, Australia
