I made this tote bag for lindyv321 in the OWS 82.  She had a similiar bag on her pinterest, but I found a different layout for the wording on my internet searching adventures.


Tada!  I bought the tote at JoAnn's and I used the freezer paper stenciling method and fabric paint.  


I first applied a layer of black fabric paint with a big sponge.  I let that dry and then applied a layer of silver fabric paint with a sea sponge and just randomly dabbed it on.  I did this to give it a little shimmer and fun!  Wee!

Aaaaaand now I need one of these bags for myself!

Thanks for looking!

Oh, and if anyone is interested, I can attach the document for the wording that I used. Done!  The image is now attached!  It should print out as a full page, but you can always resize it to suit your project!

 I like the touch of silver over the letters. Really makes it pop. Hilarious bag!

 Cheesy Just a few days ago I was wandering around singing to myself, "I like big men and I can not lie", but I'm in accord with the sentiment expressed here too--in other words, I like this bag and I can not lie.

At the moment I'm kind of addicted with this freezer paper technic and now I found a new sphere of activity :-)
