Heart Canvas Bag easy

Everyone loves hearts. This little bag is simple to make from scratch, or you can buy a plain bag ready-made. Either way, the bright red hearts make it come alive.

Fold the piece of canvas in half to find the center and mark it with a pencil. Unfold the canvas and stitch on the webbing for the handles, about 1 inch in from each side edge and middle fold.


Fold the piece of canvas in half (with the stitched side of the handles showing) and stitch across the bottom and up the open side. Turn right-side out.


How to do it:
Cover your work area with a sheet or towel. Pour a little red fabric paint into the dish. Dip the stamp into the paint and practice stamping onto a piece of paper.


To make the bag, fold down the top edge of the canvas 1/2 inch to the inside of the bag and stitch it to make a clean edge.


Put a piece of scrap paper inside the bag (to keep the paint from going through), then stamp hearts onto the outside of the bag.
