Have you tried Art Foamies? When I first got my hands on them I was a little scared of them. Stamping with foam? Are you serious? Rubber is for stamps — not foam! Boy was I wrong! They are the most versatile easy to use stamps ever. Not only can Art Foamies be stamped on paper, but on Canvas and pretty much anything else your creative heart desires.
I have about a dozen canvas bags and thought one would make a perfect bag for a little dancer to carry her shoes. I used Rita Barakat’s Ballet Art Foamie, Plaid Fabric Paint and Expo trim to make this bag:
Using the Cloud Art Foamie and Grapefruit Fabric Paint, stamp the bottom half of the doodle cloud along the top of the canvas bag.
Cover the Ballet Shoes with a coat of Fruit Punch Fabric Creation Paint. Center the Art Foamie on the bag and press.
Allow the bag to dry for several hours. Once dry to the touch press an iron on the images with a piece of parchament paper between the bag and the iron. Don’t actually iron the image — just press it. I pressed each section for about 45 seconds, lifted the iron and pressed another session and repeated the process.
Using a fabric glue (I like Beacon’s Fabric Tac), adhere the trim. Set aside to dry.
I do have this one of a kind bag listed in my shop. If you are interested in purchasing it please check it out there.
