But it's better if you do.

Recently I've really been getting into making painted totes and clutches. It's such a fun and easy way to personalize bags or make your own fabric. This one is one of my first attempts! I've been playing a lot of Zelda games lately and wanted to make a geeky tote! Who knows what will come next...maybe Earthbound or Megaman. Smiley

I used a heavyweight duck cotton fabric and some quilting cotton for the lining. The straps are cotton webbing.
For the paint, I just used some basic metallic craft paint and Martha Stewart's Fabric Medium, which I really like. It makes the paint really sink into the fabric and go on very smoothly. Unfortunately, I live about an hour from any store that sells it, so I have to order it online and pay shipping. Blegh.

Thanks for looking! Smiley


I love personal swaps! I always need fabric, findings/notions, and cute handmade things!
