I have attempted to paint a tote bag before, and have had the same problem.  If the bag is grooved, how do you stop it from bleeding? What paints are best?
Thank you very much in advance.

but the edges they fold and you suddenly find you are buried beneath a blanket of snow you had no idea was even falling.

The only paints I have ever used on fabric, is the fabric paints, aka "puffy paint" I know there is a tulip brand, that's the one I use, because I was given a whole box of it, but basically its just a really thick paint. It comes in a tube (bottle) sorta thing, with a tip that comes to a fine point, so you can just paint on your bag with the tube, or squeeze some out and use a brush. You can just go to your local craft store and check out the fabric paints, and buy the cheapest and see how it works. Hope this helps!
