blog - beach bag


appliglue beach bag

school's out & we wanted a project for the kids before heading off on holiday!

here we took a plain old hessian bag and transformed it

into a fun bag for the beach

see how we did it below




 we raided our cupboards and sorted out various fabrics choosing bright fun summer colours  start to lay out your design - we found templates online and experimented with different shapes and layouts until we were happy once your design is taking shape start to attach your shapes using clear appliglue 


 use your template to cut and arrange the sections of the beach ball - we chose pistachio to edge the sections and prevent fraying  then start to add the different elements to the bag - you can see how we gradually add detail using some of the coloured glues  finally we used a selection of buttons to add our 'sun' to the picture
