Ok, how do I seal it? Is there any kind of varnish I can use that won't make the fabric rock solid and won't crack?? Are acrylics ok to use??

I want to make a Green Day 'American Idiot' green flag bag for my daughter for xmas, but some patches 'n badges etc on to decorate.

I've found a black canvas, army surplus 'pack' bag which is perfect for the job, but I want some info first before attempting it.  Grin

Your best bet would be to use fabric paint instead of acrylic.

I have a bag that someone made for me and she used acrylic paint with a textile medium (is that really what it is called?).

Apologies to whoever were upset by my absent.  I was in and out of the hospital from December 2007 until June 2008.
