Doily Canvas Bag





For those of you that don't know...I'm totally a blog stalker. I admit it. One of the blogs I adore is "Under the Sycamore". I have never met this woman and she does not know that I stalk her, but I don't think she minds. She has the most creative ideas and is an awesome photographer. This is one of her many craft ideas that I decided to try. The bag above is my version of the one pictured here on her blog.

I got my bag at Hobby Lobby when they were 50% off of $4.99. Watch for sales!

I also used this coupon to buy the matte black fabric paint. (They have these every week online)

You can also make your own stencil by printing off the letter you want, cut it out, and trace it with a pencil. I used Copperplate Gothic Light font size 350. The trick is using a really small, stiff, angled paint brush to fill it in. Use a sponge to stencil the doily. A paint brush doesn't work as well. I heat set it with a hair dryer. Give it a try!
