A dozen little owl bags

I painted these bags for my friend's preschool class. I used the owl motif that she was using in her classroom. Painting on canvas bags is really easy. Especially if they're already white. You just add a little textile medium To regular craft paint (found near the acrylic craft paint or sometimes next to the fabric paint at Walmart or Hobby Lobby). You don't need much. I did 120 bags last year and used about 1 bottle. Paint in large areas of color first, then outline with Tulip brand puffy paint. I like that paint because I can draw with it. I always use it to write words on the bags because it's very neat (as long as you give it plenty of time to dry.) I guess I should have taken step by step pictures to show the process. I will do that next time!
