i'm so glad you like it. i had fun and went with a 50's advertising theme so it's not so obviously divergent.....did you know that they amity put peace serum in their bread when the dauntless come to dinner?
i used decoart ink effects fabric transfer paint. i bought it on clearance at joann fabrics, but you can still buy it on the website. i've only used it a couple times but i love it.
i created the image on my computer, and reverse printed it out in black and white on regular paper. then i painted it with the ink. it looks much darker on the paper. after it dries, you place it on your fabric and iron it. it works best on light colors, and will be darker on synthetic fabrics like the felt. this is the same technique on another project. i don't have an in process for the divergent bag. the cotton tote bag on the right is kind of light. painted image on the left.
you can also iron it 3 or 4 times with good results. it didn't work well for fine lines like the fear text, but for the basic images i was really happy with it. then i stitched the details with floss. i used the same stencil several times on a pillow case for my daughter it's half cotton half polyester. the image isn't still like fabric paints usually are. i haven't washed it so i don't know how durable it is. but she like it.
