Craft Shopping #eBrush Altered Bag

I'm up on the  eBrush  blog today. Here's my project share:

Let's get to it, I altered a market canvas bag with Sharpie markers:

I designed a fun saying for my bag in Cricut's Design Space.  I omitted the letter o and will be replacing it with a heart rhinestone. {If you follow me on Facebook, you  know I am on a "No Spend Craft" month.  Come May, I will be filling up this beauté with plenty of crafty goodies!}

It took me about 10 minutes to carefully remove the centers of the letters and apply them onto the bag.

I covered the exposed bag with scrap paper.  I kept an extra sheet to cover the wording and then gave it a good pressing.  I did this throughout the eBrushing so the little pieces of vinyl wouldn't fly off the fabric.

Remove your vinyl, but make sure the ink on the vinyl is dry, especially the centers of the letters.  You don't want to smudge ink on the fabric.

I couldn't find the jumbo heart bling so instead I used a black/white chevron rhinestone.  The bag also needed a flower so I broke out the "vintage" Heide Swapp felt flower.

I hot glued the ruffle ribbon, flower and rhinestones.

Chime in if you agree Craft Shopping is always a good idea unless of course you're on a "No Craft Spend" month!!

Thank you for stopping by today, enjoy your weekend.
