This will show you how to make the black and gold basic one like my sister made but you should easily be able to tweak it to fit your own taste.
- freezer paper (it's like wax paper but only coated on one side)
- fabric paint (I like the stuff tulip makes)
- brush (I like the foam ones)
- Ultrahold Iron on Bond
- Background fabric (optional -black in the picture)
- Mockingjay fabric (gold in the picture)
For the I Shop the Hob Freezer Paper Stenciling
If this goes a little fast for you check out my original freezer paper stenciling tutorial with more pictures back when I was making Harry Potter shirts ;)
- Make yourself a stencil design and cut it out of freezer paper. You can do this with a cutting machine like a cricut or with a steady hand and a razor blade. Make sure the shinny side is down.
- Iron your stencil onto your bag.
- Insert a piece of freezer paper shinny side up inside your bag to protect the paint from seeping through. Apply your paint and let dry. I find it's better to blot rather than brush.
- If you want to add a glitter layer do that and allow to dry.
- Carefully pull off stencil.
- First make your mockingjay template you can get the image I used here. I use my cricut and a program called sure cuts a lot but you can also just traced the design onto your Ultra bond. You need to decide how big your image is going to be.
- Make your gold iron on fabric the appropriate size (for me that was 6x12 since that's the size that I can run through my cricut. Do this by ironing the gold fabric to the bumpy side of the Ultra bond. (It's best do turn the iron down to medium and put another fabric in between because that shinny gold stuff is delicate and likes to melt on to irons, not that I've done that or anything ;)
- Cut your mockingjay (either by tracing and using scissors or a razor blade) or using a cutting machine.
- Next make your black iron on fabric the same way you did the gold.
- Then using your gold mockingjay as a stencil trace the inner circle onto the black fabric (or the paper side of the black (now iron-on) fabric) and cut a little larger than your circle.
- Peel the paper off of your iron-ons and arrange on your bag.
- Iron down.
- Fill your bag with books, groosling or dead rabbits, okay maybe just books or groceries.
