Living an ART filled life...“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” - Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

The Zippered Bag goes MIXED MEDIA:)

I’ve been wanting a fun personalized make-up bag for awhile.  I kept asking myself, “can’t you just make one?”  my answer was…”well, I don’t really sew.”  -and that is the truth.

BUT, I am trying to learn…hence, the daily zippered bag projects:)

This is the bag I had in my head…well, at least ONE of them:)

Mixed Media Bag

I wasn’t super happy with the last zippered bag I made…I like this one  better.

I do admit that I really had some “needle troubles”

Not sure the cause…bent one…another kept falling out…I think I need a few more basic lessons from my Daughter:)

Go HERE for the step by step bag tutorial.

For the design, I used inexpensive acrylic paints mixed with textile medium, which when heat set, becomes permanent but still soft and flexible.  For the lettering, I used a permanent black XS PITT multi liner pen.

The material I used for the bag is an inexpensive muslin.

Please send me a message, if you have any questions!!

Thanks for stopping by!
