Spring DIY Stenciled Bag!

With spring coming up, I decided my drab grocery bags needed some sprucing up!  So I decided to stencil a canvas bag to see how I liked it and…I love it!  I’m going to make a bunch of these to use for groceries and the farmers market,
Do It Yourself!  Here is what you’ll need:

Paints
Paint Brush
Stencils
Canvas Bag
Those stencils look familiar?  I used them to make beautiful DIY placemats in January!  I loved them so much, I decided to reuse them!
Here are the paints I chose 

Canvas Tote from Mich.aels

I used a grocery bag to stick in the bag to prevent the paint from “bleeding” onto the other side!

Hold the stencil down snug, and use the smallest amount of paint as possible.  Otherwise it will smear(which happened a couple times). 
Continue stenciling to your heart’s content!  
I’m going to be styling’ walking around the farmers market with this grocery bag!

What do you think?  I can’t wait to use it 🙂

I’m so excited to be a part of the patches of pink design team.  Please head over to Jalisa’s Blog to check out all the other lovely ladies projects and link up your own!
