my creative space: bag love/obsession

I have a little thing for the colour emerald green and when I saw some gorgeous emerald green linen at spotlight, I drooled over it and HAD to have it! So for the last week... or so, I have been dreaming about what to do with it... a bag of course! I decided to use my feather arrow design which I am in love with at the moment.

:: I had to re-cut my feather arrow stencil as I destroyed the previous one

:: I screen printed my feather arrow design in gunmetal ink on the bag panels

I didn't have any suitable fabric for the lining, so I decided to make my own! I love the fact I can make fabric if I need it!

I thought confetti! I traced out the panel, sprinkled some confetti until I liked how it looked (this took a while!) FYI - I placed the screen on top of the sprinkled confetti and did one pass with the ink and squeegee on the screen so the confetti bits stick to the bottom side of the screen and then you can screen print the design on to other fabric.

:: sprinkling confetti is hard work!

:: screen printing confetti design
:: ready to put all together - loving the confetti lining!

:: my new bag :)

:: Love love love it!!

Woo hoo... a lovely new bag! I am so HAPPY with how it turned out!

Hope your week has been a creative one... Check out lots of creative people here!
