instructions

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Iron your tote then lay it on your flat workspace. Fold your tote in an accordion style fold.
  2. Place enough rubber bands down your tote to create six sections.
  3. Mix a 1:3 ratio of Fabric Creations to water in your squeeze bottles and shake until well mixed.
  4. Squeeze your African Violet on one section of your tote and massage the paint into the tote. Try to leave some white space near your rubber bands. Repeat this process and work your way up the tote using Navy, Lime, Real Yellow, Tangerine, and Poppy.
  5. Remove the rubber bands from your tote and lay it flat to dry. Once your tote is dry, heat set it with an iron or put it in the dryer with dry heat.
