well I saw the lich. pillow and wanted to try it but had an inkjet printer and wanted a colored pic. so i came up with this!



here's the before pic of my oh-so-boring bag

http://img23.photobucket.com/albums/v69/JesusFreak3259/pop%20art%20bag/Hpim0763.jpg

first of all I started by finding a picture. I used paint to make it bigger. I wanted it just like the original pic-with the "hair" to the left side. so i used the Image-Flip-FLip Horizontal button

http://img23.photobucket.com/albums/v69/JesusFreak3259/pop%20art%20bag/Hpim0772.jpg

Then using the iron-ons for inkjet printers I bought at Michael's, I printed my design (be sure to follow instructions on back of package)

http://img23.photobucket.com/albums/v69/JesusFreak3259/pop%20art%20bag/Hpim0771.jpg

On my package, it said to fold a pillowcase in half, iron it, and then iron my material (i used an old white t-shirt) and put it on top

Make sure your iron is on max and let it heat up for 5 min. 

While your are waiting, cut your ribbon as long as the bottom edge of the bag. Use fabric glue to glue is on.

Now you are ready to iron on your image. DO NOT STEAM! DO NOT DO NOT DO NOT! Place your image face down on the material. Then using two hands on the iron handle use your body weight to iron the image on. Make sure your get all edges and corners as well. Iron for about three minutes then lift up from the corner.

Cut away excess material from around your picture. Use fabric glue to glue it to the middle of the bag. Then use ribbon to line the pic. My ribbon was a little too thick for my bag so I cut it in half.

And voila! A great retro pop art bag in about 10 minutes!

Looks good!  That bag was a good candidate for a Lichtenstein.

Yeah, that's lovely! I'm doing something similar, but with an Audrey Hepburn print. Smiley I'm thinking about having some kind of lace around the border of it. It will look Darling!
