Last Saturday was the first Saturday in a long, LONG time that I didn't actually have something that NEEDED to be done. And for a long, LONG time (since the making of my first bag), by daughter has wanted me to make her a bag featuring her all-time favorite actress,
So Saturday was the day to
"Get 'er done!"
I have never printed on fabric before, but have read from several blogs about different methods. The method I chose is probably not the best method for something that could need to be washed in the future...but I think there is a way to set the image before washing. I'll have to check my files again. I used an 8x11 sheet of mailing labels, stuck the muslin on it, trimmed & ran it thru the printer ~ Easy Peasy!
And here we go:
After printing the picture onto white muslin,
we added a small black floral border.
Then sewed the picture onto the front of the bag.
Whipped it all together and added straps & bows...
An Audrey Hepburn backpack bag!
Not bad for someone who doesn't sew much!
And it all started with a simple idea!
I'm linking up today with Tea Rose Home's
Check it out for some great inspiration!
