Hi, Lisa Marie here today to show you how I used Colorbox® Erasable Fabric Ink to make this Sugar Skull Tote Bag. In this project I used Erasable Fabric Ink along with a wooden stamp to stamp the heart pattern which I then embroidered with seed beads. Adding the sugar skull fabric to the plain tote bag, gave it a fun and whimsical feel. So let’s get this project started!
• Clearsnap®Wood Block Stamp – Heart
• Colorbox® Erasable Fabric Inkpad
• Muslin Fabric
• Beading Thread
• Seed Beads
• Embroidery Hoop
• Beading Needle
• Fabric Fusion Iron Sheets
• Fabric Tote Bag
• Sugar Skull Fabric
How I made this Sugar Skull Tote Bag:
Place the stamped fabric into an embroidery hoop so fabric is tight. Use beading thread and needle to sew the seeds beads onto the fabric, following the stamped design. Using beading thread is recommended, as the beads may cut through regular sewing thread. When you are finished with the heart, if any of the erasable ink is showing, you can remove it with water.
Use fusion iron sheets to adhere the sugar skull fabric to the front of the tote bag. Cut the beaded heart fabric into a square and attach to the center of the skull fabric using fusion sheets. Accent the tote bag with creative colorful stitching.
I love how this bag turned out and now I have a fun bag to bring home all the goodies from my next trip to the craft store. Using the Erasable Fabric Ink is easy and fun. Just stamp your favorite stamp design onto fabric and start creating. You can bead, paint or embroidery your design. Clearsnap®’s large wooden stamps are perfect to use with the fabric ink. With so many to choose from, which one will you use for your next project?
