Hello all, CreativeTeam member Marleen here with my first project for this amazing stencil family StencilGirl!
Here in the Netherlands we had summer temperatures last week so I got that summer feeling.
I bought summer cloth and shoes and I'm ready for vacation, sun and a swim in the pool.
With my new shoes I got a really nice burlap bag and then an idea was born!
I took some canvas fabric together with my Rae Missigman stencils (with masks) and fabric paint and started with what I had in mind.

Here are the step by step photos:
Tape your canvas around your cutting mat, then it is easy to paint.
Choose your colors.
Choose your favorite stencils!
Take a sponge and go....
Then take your sewing machine and sew the white lines. Not all the lines, but the once you like.
I'm not a good sewer but I don't mind if it is not exactly on the line.
This burlap bag is plastic-coated and it is very stiff. I discovered that it was impossible to sew the canvas all the way inside the bag. I only sewed the topside and the rest I glued with fabric glue.
I made a front and backside.
It's still a little flat and I missed some black.
After all the paint was dry I decided to make some hanging accessories to add to the bag.
Make a cord.
Add Turquoise Relique to some metal embellishments. Seal with ICE Resin to make permanent.
Take some shrinking plastic, alcohol inks and 2 feather stencils and make some extra embellishments (make holes before shrinking!).
Put it all together and add it to the bag.
Yeah, I'm ready for summer!
These are the stencils I used:
Hope you are inspired!
Till the next project and have a beautiful summer with some stencil-time!
