Paint your own bag!
It's super fun to be creative at your kids' party. You could decorate cotton bags with textile paint, how cool is that? Each pimps his own bag, for example a bag with a handle or perhaps a backpack with a cord! Then you immediately have a personal swimming bag or gym bag, or maybe you will use it when you go to stay, go to Grandma's or if you have another school trip. You can have lunch in there, and lots of goodies, and everyone knows that bag belongs to you.!
We have made some examples below for inspiration, how you could decorate your bag, but of course you make your own version!

For painting a bag you do not need much. In addition to the cotton bag itself, you will need textile paint. We used Mucki finger paint, a Creotime Textile pen (with a handy thin tip on one side and a thicker tip on the other), a piece of cardboard (against pushing through to the back of the bag) and your own fingers and hands. You can even use your feet if you like! As an extra you can also use a toilet roll, fork or straw to stamp with. And you can make your own stamp, by sticking a foam rubber on eg. a plastic cup or a cork.
Spoon some textile paint from the jar onto a paper plate with a teaspoon (watch out, textile paint no longer goes out of your clothes or furniture after 24 hours), slide a large piece of cardboard into your bag (against pushing through to the back of the bag) and you can get started!
Did you accidentally tamper on your hands or clothes while painting? Then you can easily get it off your hands with soap and wash your clothes at 30 degrees, no problem.!
Is your bag ready and the paint is dried for 24 hours? Then put a tea towel on it and iron the bag for 5 minutes (cotton stand). The paint is now fixed and just stays on it. Even after washing in the machine! (max. wash at 40 degrees). So you can enjoy your homemade bag or backpack for a long time!
How to make it B pouch and bees :
Put a piece of cardboard in your bag.
With a fork and red paint stamp your tulips. First practice a few times on a scrap paper.
With a paper straw or another stick you can make peduncles.
Make a butterfly from a toilet roll, which first squeezes you into the shape you want.
Make bees with your thumb and dot the clouds with a straw.
Draw black lines with the textile marker, but only after drying the finger paint.
Extra ideas to stamp with:
Half apple, lemon or other piece of fruit, cork, clothespin, satay stick, potato, cut into a mold bubbly plastic,.
Making your own stamps is actually so squeaked. Cut a mouse, cat, heart or letter out of foam rubber and stick it on something so you can hold the stamp better.
How to make the Cat Cup bag:
Using a plastic cap, draw a round on paper and draw ears with it. Cut out and pull it over on a piece of foam, which you also cut out. .
For convenience, you could also cover these templates, but self-drawn cat cups and other figures are really much more fun, hear!
Glue the cat's head with allmucus (eg. from Collall) on the cap. Make another fish and a little smaller kitten for example.
Put paint on a paper plate or put aluminum foil on a real plate so that you can remove the foil and keep a clean plate left.
Draw and cut a pond of paper and paste it with (possibly double-sided) adhesive tape onto the bag. So you can outline the shape, convenient! Of course you can also do that with all kinds of other drawings, if you think it's scary to start drawing from your head on the bag.
Stamp fish in the pond and with a straw stamp you make circles for the water.
Then stamp the kittens. Work by color! Stamp here and there 3 or 4x with the first color. Then wash off the stamp with water and pat dry with a paper towel. Then choose a different color, which you also stamp with several times.
Allow the textile paint to dry for an hour, or use a hair dryer and blow the paint dry. When the finger paint is dry, you can draw with the textile pen.
And so you make the Ladybug with heart bag:
Draw and cut a heart of paper and use it as a mold to put on the center of your bag. Stick it in the right place with double-sided tape.
If you do not want to draw a heart yourself, you can also print and cut this template to size.
Dotted around it with a cotton stick with paint. Remove the paper template and draw and dot with the pen and cotton swab.
Use a new cotton swab (or the other side) to dot other colors.
Dot at the bottom of green dots, which looks a bit like blade of grass. With your thumb stamp, your red fingerprints will be the ladybugs.
After drying paint (you can also blow dry), draw with a black textile tip the black head, the stripe, dots on his back and the paws.
So you can make a ladybug step by step!
Under the name there is another bird made of a yellow thumbprint and the black marker, but of course you can also make another figure, just what you want!
First practice on a piece of paper some different figurines
and different colors..
Which one do you like the most?
These are the bags as they eventually became. One thing is certain, your bag will be original, and there is no one in the world who walks with the same bag or backpack!
TIP: Make it a mini fashion show at your children's party, with all the bags one by one on the catwalk? Then photograph the photo models with the beautiful bags. Feel free to send the pictures to email@example.com so we can add the photo here. That would be cool! :) 🎉 Lots of paint-a-bag fun desired at your birthday party! 🎉
More pimping bags:
Would you like to see more fun examples and inspirations? Mirelle of @Mirelle -Creametkids also made three more! For that she used sponge sticks and even handprints, also very cool to have your own handprint on a bag!
