To give you a step-by-step process, here is a description of how I make a hand-painted tote bag….
1. Buy yards of fabric, wash the fabric, iron out the wrinkles in the fabric, cut out each bag and its straps.
2. I spend time thinking up and planning the design for the bag. I usually sketch a concept, mix paint colors, experiment, etc. For each design, I also cut out my own stencils and patterns to use while painting! (Which means everything is exclusively designed by myself, the artist, and I use no mass-produced images or material to create the bags)
3. Then I paint the bag (which takes me at least 2 hours, minimum, depending on the size and design).
4. Once the paint has dried and I heat set it, I then sew the bag and straps to turn it into a final product, ready for you to use!
