Like most of the world, I love the Hunger Games series. I've yet to see the movie, but the books were so good! If you're familiar, you'll totally get this:
I made a Hob shopping bag! It was easy and fun, and I'm going to show you how I did it!
First, you'll need a plain colored, canvas bag and a bleach pen. Make sure you get the pen FOR WHITES because you want it to remove the color. Also, the darker the bag, the better the outcome.
Put a piece of wax paper into your bag so the bleach doesn't soak through.
I found and printed a design I liked on the Hunger Games Mockingjay site.
I covered the back of the design with white chalk.
Then, I roughly traced the design, transferring the chalk to my bag.
I filled in the design with my bleach pen and waited! I made the bleach thinner in some areas for a vintage distressed look.
You can see how it started to change color.
When you have the desired color, rinse the bleach off in cold water. I used the sprayer on the kitchen sink so I didn't smear bleach onto the rest of the bag.
Let your bag dry completely and then head off to the Hob for some of Greasy Sae's soup and bring home a bottle of Ripper's white liquor in your new bag!
I'm linking this up to all of my favorite linky parties!
