DIY: Decorate A Canvas Purse with Watercolor Pencils

Today (Thursday) was one of those days when I had everything planned out to do, then it was all messed up by my own unfortunate misinterpretation of what time 12:00am is!  Which left me with a full day to do whatever I please 🙂  Naturally, art day!  So I got all my paints together, picked up some canvases from my stash, yada yada yada.  And what did I find?  A canvas purse that I bought on clearance over a year ago, but had never done anything with!  PERFECTION!

If you haven’t seen it already, I watched this YouTube video by The Frugal Crafter last night, and it sounded like so much fun!  So of course, I find this purse and I must try it out!  I won’t keep you in the dark, she uses Derwent Inktense watercolor pencils to draw right onto fabric!  It was so gorgeous!  I don’t have Inktense pencils, but I do have a small set of Derwent Watercolor Pencils that so far have been working out nicely for my projects.

Moving along.  So I have this penguin tshirt, I love it, its so cute!  I decided to trace the penguins from there, and use those for my purse.

If you’re interested in doing this yourself, grab your supplies:
pattern for tracing (look at your clothes, search online, check out books, etc)
tracing paper big enough for your pattern
purse: canvas fabric works well, try something like these
regular #2 pencil
watercolor pencils
fabric medium
cup of water to clean brushes + separate cup of clean water
iron to heat set according to fabric medium directions

First I traced my image from my tshirt.  Then I traced the WRONG SIDE of the tracing paper, with dark outlines.  Don’t make the lines too thick and skip any small parts that you can estimate placement yourself and will be a lighter color on your fabric. (aka don’t trace in black something you want yellow)

DIY Penguin Purse Design with Watercolor Pencils

Trace your image, place paper directly on top of image to trace.

Now trace the WRONG SIDE of your paper with dark lines. This will be how we transfer the image.

Now place the WRONG SIDE face down onto your canvas/purse/fabric.  Use your #2 pencil to heavily mark the images, you can trace the outlines on the RIGHT SIDE or mark/scribble horizontally over the lines.  You can see it better in the next photo.  You could also try using graphite paper, but that is really messy and can easily smudge the rest of your fabric!

 

DIY Penguin Purse Design with Watercolor Pencils

I left this image bigger so you can more easily see how the penguins now look a little “fuzzy” on the edges. Its because I am scribbling over the outlines to transfer the image to the fabric.

GAfter you transfer all of your image.  Decide on your colors.  I used the black to first draw the outline darker.  Then dark blue for the penguin’s body, and orange for their beak and feet.

 

DIY Penguin Purse Design with Watercolor Pencils

I added the dark black outline for the penguins bodies. I messed up the eyes on the one on the right. He’s supposed to be “suspicious” not “angry”.

Fill in all your colors. Go light at first, you can always add more color after the next step. Now, get your colors wet. Use a paintbrush to “paint with water” on your colors. Go one color at a time. If you like, do all the dark colors first then the light colors.  My oranges got a little muddy from the pencil tracings, this is why I suggest you skip the small bits when doing the tracing/transfer.

I wanted more blue on my penguins, so after I got them wet, I went back over their bodies with a lighter blue pencil and then blended with water. Then I added their ice floe so they wouldn’t just be floating in space.

Next, and you don’t have to wait for anything to dry, go over the entire pattern with Fabric Painting Medium.  Again, you can choose to do this by color or lights and darks separately.  Thats what I did, I saved the oranges for last after I cleaned off my brush.  I don’t have white pencils, so I left their tummies the same color as the fabric.

 

Don’t forget to heat set the design with your iron according to the directions on your fabric medium bottle!

I wanted one more penguin so I added one to my purse flap.  What a cutie.

Fill in all your colors. Go light at first, you can always add more color after. Now, get your colors wet. Use a paintbrush to "paint with water" on your colors. Go one color at a time. If you like, do all the dark colors first then the light colors. If you make one too, be sure to link back here so I can see your designs!  All those inexpensive canvas aprons, purses, hats, totes, etc would be perfect for this project.  Plus, this would be a fun project for your crafty teenagers!

The Crafty Traveling Box Stopped Here!

2-3 weeks ago the Crafty Traveling Box stopped by my house with a lovely selection of craft supplies for me to choose from!  It was very exciting, I had joined along with Awesomesauce and Asshattery for the international craft supplies swap!  I had planned on what I would be sending…that is until I opened the box!

Once I opened it, I realized all the lace I had planned to send, was probably not going to help anyone.  I had planned to send some swatches and some doilies- but there were already a few doilies and what looked like vintage hankerchiefs inside!  Oh well, I had some other goodies planned!

Here is the first post from Sheri when she sent it out, check out her goodies she sent to us!

When I opened it up, all these lovelies were inside!

craftybox3I love the peacock trim, but no clue what I would do with it.  Some shiny gold fabric that again I have no clue what to do with.  The doilies and lace trims were pretty, and I decided not to add mine to the mix.  Then those really pretty (presumably) vintage hankerchiefs!  I wanted them, but one of the “rules” was to only take the things you will use.  So something to just look at, was not going to cut it!  Besides…I’m trying to sell off a lot of my stash, no need to add to it with things I am clueless to use!

I ended up picking one doily, it feels different then cotton, not sure if it is a type of polyester.  I love the look of doilies on clothes, as a pocket or maybe a cutout on the back!

craftybox1

Then, there was a huge pack of unopened gold sequin trim!  I scooped that right up!  I have some pink and black sequin trim I got on clearance at JoAnn’s awhile back.  I have high hopes that I can come up with a cool design with these different trims to refashion a shirt or possibly some jeans.  Here are some ideas:

4 DIY Sequin Ideas for New Years Eve   <—–Lots of great sequin clothing refashions

 

Here is what I passed along in the box!

craftybox4That’s a vintage pattern I got at a garage sale.  Not sure why I picked it up, I think I got it for free!  An iron-on silver metallic panda…another questionable purchase, but look how cute he is!  A home-dec fabric swatch that I had high hopes to make a purse from (similar to those placemat clutches), but its been a year and I still have it!  Time to go.  2 lengths of hemp, and then a handful of vintage metal buttons.  Because who doesn’t love buttons?!

DIY Your Name in Wire Pendant

I was inspired by many other blogger’s who put together helpful tutorials for writing your name in wire, and making it into a pendant.

I wrote my name on paper in cursive and got to work!  Didn’t take too long and I really love it!

Yes I cut my head off. I take my own pictures, sometimes in the mirror or at myself. Mostly they are awkward when they include my face!

Making these inspired me to try a few other wire pendants!  I’ll share those with you in another blog post!

Adventures with Rit Dye Part 1

I’ve been wanting to dye fabric for over a YEAR!  But have constantly been intimidated by it.  Finally, I had a full day without any plans, I decided to go for it!

I dyed a whole HEAP of clothes!  However, today I’m only going to highlight one of those items plus give you the rundown of how my process went!  I had so much fun, and perhaps I got a little carried away….near the end there, I just ran up to my closet and randomly pulled things out!

First things first, gather your supplies and be sure to do some research!  I bought Rit Fabric Dye, so many people use this stuff, even old ladies buy it, so I know it must be good!  I checked out their website before heading to the store.  I already had some Kelly Green fabric dye that I bought on clearance a year ago, so I wanted to choose 1 or 2 colors that would look good mixed with it.  I chose Black because I wanted to dye a few things black or darker black, then Teal because it mixes well with the Kelly Green (which you can read about here in their Color Guide).  It looked like I could make all sorts of colors with those, so it seemed a good choice.

I read suggests to use table salt or vinegar, so I made sure to have those handy.  I decided not to use them however, so you’ll have to search info elsewhere about that.  I read all the tips for dying fabric on Rit’s Techniques page, Stovetop Method like 15 times.  Its not my washing machine, so I decided to avoid the possibility of screwing it up.

For the stovetop method you need:

A large pot, (garage sale score $1)
Picnic Tablecloth to protect the floor from drips
1-2 plastic tubs for carrying the wet item around (to outside or whatever)
long 1/2″ wooden dowel, $0.75 for stirring
Measuring cups (optional)
Table salt (optional)
White vinegar (optional)
Pants hangar (optional)
Dish Soap (optional)
Gloves (optional but recommended)

Large Pot for Fabric Dying - Christina Designs Art - Rit Dye Adventures Part 1

This is how big your pot should be, you need to cover your entire fabric with the dye

I will cover tips and techniques, plus a few insights into things that didn’t go right, on another post.  I don’t want this to be long and boring.  So I’ll share the first shirt I ever dyed!

Before Flash Dye Shirt - Christina Designs Art - Rit Fabric Dye Adventures

Flash Dye Shirt

The only purpose of this shirt being dyed was to test out what I was doing, before I dropped in my main reason for dying.  That being said, I still didn’t want it to turn all black (my chosen starting color).  So I decided to just drop it in real quickly, like literally less than a minute.  I decided to just drop the whole thing in as quickly as I could, then let it completely be covered, and pull the whole thing back out again!

Thats why its titled the Flash Dye Shirt.  So it started out light grey and white striped.  Read the directions on the bottle and on the website thoroughly before beginning so you have an idea of what to do!!  I was expecting maybe a light grey where the white used to be and dark grey where the light grey used to be.  I got a totally surprise.  I was quite shocked when I pulled it out, how QUICKLY the dye had taken to the fabric!!!

In hindsight, I should have realized the dye would be most potent the first time around, and perhaps I should have placed my intentionally dark item in first.  Oh well.  It still looks ok.  In fact, I might dye it again and see if I can darken up the bottom of the shirt (which ironically was placed in first).

After Flash Dye Shirt - Christina Designs Art - Rit Fabric Dye Adventures

While drying outside

Here you can faintly see the stripes near the bottom, which I still find crazy that I see anything at all.  Also, the color isn’t quite so grey.  After it dried (no picture, sorry), it had that nice vintage/faded look which I think is fun.  However those bottom stripes look too accidental to keep.  Maybe I will paint stripes over them instead.  How interesting…

I dried everything outside on this partially cloudy day, that may have had some effect to the lightening color.  But I didn’t want to wait for it to air dry in the house.  I did put almost everything in the dryer after the items were partially dry to attempt the idea of “heat setting” the dye.

Keep checking back for the next installment when I share the piece of clothing I REALLY wanted to dye black!

Refashion Friday: Paint Me Pretty

Lately I have had such an urge to use fabric paint on my clothes!  I have a pullover sweatshirt that I ripped out the word applique (the brand name) from the back and I am just finalizing a design for the back with fabric spray paint!  I found some Tulip Fabric Spray Paint and I want to buy it so BADLY!  OK, perhaps not that same pack, but you get the idea!  There are other Tulip Fabric Paints to choose from, or I could easily make my own, I bet there is a recipe out there on Pinterest!

Anyway, to get you in the same mood I am in, check out these awesome fabric paint refashions!

Geometric Designs are always really popular and fairly easy to replicate, as she shows you!

Here’s a fun idea using dyes and fabric spray paint, love the design here!

OK so its not fabric paint, but its pretty similar!  Either way, how cool would this look in ombre??

I know, I know, this isn’t clothes!  But don’t let that stop you!  Be inspired by the idea and apply it to a maxi skirt!

Oh look at that, there totally IS a fabric spray paint DIY!

DIY Easily Dress Up Some Flip Flops

I went to an outdoor wedding this past weekend that was “casual” so I already knew I was wearing a lovely sundress, but couldn’t decide what sandals to wear.  I had a pair of black Old Navy flip flops that I got last year (free from Crowdtap- read about that here), but plain flip flops seemed way too dressed down even for a casual outdoor wedding.  So while I was working the other day I had an idea to FINALLY use some of that pretty trim that people always buy and I have no idea what to do with.

So I brought my flip flop to JoAnns with me so I could compare and figure out how much I needed.  I searched the trims and settled on a pretty black lacey beaded trim.  I bought 3/4 of a yard, which was about 4 inches more than I thought I needed, but its best to buy a little extra!  Plus 50% off coupons right now, so it was ok.  I do have the 4 inches leftover because I didn’t mess up at all.  I already know what I am doing with it!

DIY Tutorial Dress Up Flip Flops

So it begins!  Grab your flip flops and whatever pretty trim you want to use.  The trim I chose is a Beaded Lace Trim with flowers, all black.  It is about 1/2″ wide and has about 1/4″ wide space to glue it down.  I used E6000 because I love that stuff for everything!  It worked perfectly.  And now they look great and its such an easy way to dress up an outfit!

Confession: I Want A New View with Pinterest

 

Lately I have been spending so much time deleting random Pinterest boards that I somehow have found myself to be following.  I assume many of these random boards are related to a “Follow All to enter this giveaway.”  I can’t stand those, why do I have to follow them all?  I’m still considered a follower if I just pick the ones I might actually enjoy.

You’ve all heard my thoughts on Twitter follows in a previous Confession post, but if you didn’t see it/can’t remember, read about it here.  I’m beginning to think similarily with my Pinterest.  I have never been one to “follow back” just because someone started following me.  I love Pinterest and want to look at quality content, so sorry if I don’t want to see images from your “Glamping” album because I have no interest there.

When I first started Pinterest I wasn’t gluten free, so I followed tons of recipe boards.  Now I find I have no use for “breads”, “pasta”, etc boards.  So a quick unfollow and I feel so much better!  While I am on said person’s board, I see I’m also following a myriad of boards I have no interest in, let alone ever even popup in my feed.  I am following too many boards, I never see everything!  So I am condensing.

I feel kinda guilty about it, but I unfollowed an Etsy board.  As someone who is hoping to sell their items and would love the joy of seeing a bracelet (find some here at my Etsy store!) pinned and repinned on Pinterest, I feel bad to unfollow a board that shares any awesome Etsy items.  However, thats all I see sometimes!  I wish those Etsy Handmade boards were more specific, but thats also so hard to regulate when you have like 50+ (or worse, like 500+) people posting to a board about whatever they want.  How does someone moderate a thing like that?  I suppose I could have my own boards, and share specific items like that, but I also hate having a million boards that people and/or myself aren’t even interested in.

After stopping following a few of the Etsy Handmade boards, I see so much more content!  But one thing I can’t decide, which DIY / Crafts boards should I keep following?  I must be following like 20 of those boards, but I only ever see a few of the same boards posting content, and some of it isn’t even all that “new”, even though most of it claims to be “genius!”  But thats another Confession altogether!  The big multi-contributor boards are the places that are constantly getting posted to, but I really don’t know how relevant some of these ideas are to DIY.  For instance, “Cleaning with Vinegar” is not what I would consider DIY or Crafts, and yet its in that board.  And while recipes are a type of craft, they belong under Recipes.  Know what I’m sayin?

Enlisting your help!  What do you think of these boards?  Keep?  Or unfollow??

After searching through my feed at 2 very different times (morning and night), the majority of pins comes from the 1st link: DIY & Crafts and the Etsy Handmade Faves boards.  They might have to go…at least for a time!

So many DIYs, only one week to do them!

If you don’t want to read all this, (and I’m not insulted), skip to the bottom for some real info about upcoming projects and a refashion question or 2 for you!

Hello everyone! It has been SO LONG!  I do apologize for being MIA for so long, I have finally finished my first quarter of PTA school.  I think I did really well, I do not know all my grades yet, but they would have contacted me if I failed anything 🙂  I was taking 3 classes, Introduction to Physical Therapy, Medical Terminology, and Anatomy + Physiology 1.  Intro was not the funnest class ever, in fact it was rather dull for most of the quarter, good thing I had a fun teacher.  Medical Terminology was even more intense then the class I took for Massage Therapy, I wasn’t expecting so much extra info.  Plus all the abbreviations!  Hundreds of them I need to know, I’ll have to keep studying those all year round.  And A+P, not done yet!  It continues for round 2 next quarter, along with Rehab 1.  Finally we can start learning about what PTAs really do in the field.  I’m pretty excited!

So not only is my first quarter finished (yay!), I have a week off (double yay!), for me to have fun finishing up some projects!  Trust me, I have a massive list!
On this list is a few tutorials I promised you guys, but near the end there I had to study for finals, so not much time, plus a few extra projects I was finishing up!  So I’ll share with you a few things to expect from me in the coming month, as well as any changes that have happened so you can stop “waiting” to hear anything.

Who remembers my Year of Something New?  Well, my sister had her babies back on May 4th (i’m an auntie!), and now this is really a year of something new, except its mainly all baby related haha!  Its ok, I don’t mind it, I am enjoying all the days and hours I am spending with my new niece and nephew.  Sorry no photos, their rule, not mine.  So while things are certainly new, they aren’t the crafty things I had originally planned, and I am not able to share as much with you all as I had hoped.  I will hopefully someday share some of the items I have made for them, as well as other gifts down the rode.  But this blog will not turn into all babies all the time, so thats good!

I have finally started a long overdue wedding gift, it took me a long time to really pick what I wanted to give this bride.  Some people are just easy, but I love to handmake gifts and I think those are the nicest gifts because I make them personalized.  So anyways, I have officially made the decision for a wedding I was in a few months ago, and have already started it.  When I finish and gift it, I will share it with you, its a 2 piece gift!  Then I have another gift that’s more extensive, I want to start and finish as well.  I at least hope to finish half of it, though according to the “directions” it should only take about 2 hours.

I am also in the process of making a Blurb photobook and a Shutterfly photo book.  If you are not signed up for either email list, do it now!  I will share those with you when I finish, I’ve been hoping to do a comparison one I finish my Blurb book, but again I couldn’t decide on a subject, and I tend to add too many things to my plate and that was one of them!  So this week that is also on the list!

PS.  Through 6/30 Blurb is offering 15% off a book!  Follow the link below to order your book now!  This is my affiliate link and I will earn a small percentage if you buy through my link, and I thoroughly appreciate when you do.

Too long, didn’t read, starts HERE:

Oh, I also have a massive selection of refashions I want to work on!  I even made a list of everything involving clothes that I want to paint or sew in some way.  I still have a sweatershirt I want to trim down so its more fitted, its like an XL but its from University of Dayton (where I graduated) so it’d be nice to wear it and it fit, you know?  I also trimmed down another hoodie that I have wanted to paint but couldn’t pick a design, I wanted to paint the front pocket black and added a toilet paper stencil, but instead I think I have picked a wrap-around design with no black included!  Maybe some glitter though!

I also would like to know, what are your thoughts on cutting sleeves off jean jackets?  I have this jean jacket I bought a few years ago at a garage sale for a few bucks, never worn it!  I have no idea how to wear jean jackets, is the jean color supposed to match?  Anyway, this jacket fits ok, but I was thinking of cutting off the sleeves or maybe making it short sleeved because it fits awkward at the shoulders.  You just check this out, I love the pockets so I don’t want to crop it.  Oh and the color is a dark bluish yellowy greeny, know what color I’m talking about?  Neither photo I could enhance to get the right color, the left is much too blue, and the right I didn’t get any change.  If you can see in the photo, by the shoulders it looks tight just laying flat, thats kinda how it feels.  I was hoping cutting off the sleeves, maybe adding lace sleeves?  Would solve the tightness problem.  Thoughts anyone?

Daily Prompt: Switcheroo

Daily Prompt: If you could switch blogs with any blogger for a week, with whom would you switch and why?

 

diyallthethings

Talk about an easy question!  I would switch places with

True Blue Me & You: Doable Unique DIYs

 

If you are unfamiliar with this blog, it is SO FUN!  I am addicted to DIYs, and I don’t do that many yet, but I LOVE to read about them and find more.  My Pinterest boards are FULL of so many types of DIYs.  I have often thought about having a blog that only shares super awesome DIYs and tutorials.  But there are already a lot of blogs that do just that.

Besides, I am so inconsistent and unorganized.  I would really need to up my game to have a blog like she does.  Though I might someday open a Tumblr blog, maybe when I have time to take more photos of things.

So there you go!
