poppy bag

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The leaves, in the class at my guild we were given a printed fabric for the leaves. But I had learned to paint leaves in Annette's class. I think mine looked way better than the other students who only used paint on the flower and bud. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Annette starts out with a light colored fabric and paints darker areas. This is wayyyy better than using a dark fabric and trying to lighten it up with paint mixed with white, which is what this other teacher recommended. I tried both ways and will definitely be using light fabrics in the future. The whitened paint looks odd.

What you will need

  • cotton fabric
  • cotton thread and pebeo setacolor fabric paints
