Hello and Happy Spring! (we had snow this week in Cincy!!) Today’s post is a project highlighting both our April Frog Dog Studio Kit and Amazing Crafting Product Clear Cast Resin part of our April Add on Kit. and, of course… And from my own supplies… The Crafters Workshop stencil below…

I’ve been expanding my horizons from paint, ink, and pens on paper & canvas to Fabric.
I have extremely basic sewing skills, and have never been one to have a mind that enjoys following a pattern…too precise…but, with a desire to paint on textiles, I am forcing myself to learn a few things.
From small zippered bags to totes:)
I found the pattern for this tote here.
It’s an easy pattern to follow…trust me…if I can do it…well, you know the rest:)
This was actually an easier project than trying to put a zipper into a small make-up bag. (previous post here)
It’s even reversible!
Thank you so much Helen Newton!!! (owner of Lilly Blossom over at Etsy)
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…
I don’t know about you, but I can’t ever find a cute zippered make-up bag…other than plain black, or odd colors I don’t really like. (neon pink:) )
I’ve been wanting to sew one myself, but knew it would have to be very simple!
This is actually my first real sewing project outside of the simple quilting I used to do 25 years ago:)
I had a little help and encouragement from my seamstress daughter.
This great tutorial can be found here …thank you Anna!!!
I’ve got a lot more experimenting to do with color and mediums I’d like to try, but this one was “painted” with Moon Shadow Ink from Lindy’s Stamp Gang. (Golden Doubloons)
You may not be able to see the variation in color and shimmer these Inks provide, but they are truly magical.
-One product with multi-layers of color, activated by warm water.
I heat set this design with an iron for about 30 seconds over each area. I’m really not sure if this will prevent the color from running if it gets wet….guess I will find out!
The good news: I don’t plan on washing this bag, so hopefully it will be fine as is.
I am sure to make more in the near future, using other products that are meant for the wash…I’ll keep you “posted!”
Thanks for reading:)
