Apostrophy Designs: OMTWI Burlap: Ombray Chevron Bag {TUTORIAL}

OMTWI Burlap: Ombray Chevron Bag {TUTORIAL}

For the Burlap Challenge, I came up with an Ombray Chevron Bag & coordiating clutch. This bag was made from white burlap and painted into Chevrons using an Ombray painting technique.

 Both accessories are adorned with a coordinating brown burlap flower and blinged up in the middle with some matching beads.

I made the bag a bit bigger than I usually do, along with 6 pockets. This makes this bag and coordinating clutch perfect the take along for the Farmer's Market, Beach, or where ever your summer will take you!

TUTORIAL:
Supplies:
     - 1 yard White Burlap
     - 1 can of Fabric Spray Paint (I got mine at Jo-Ann's)
     - 1 yard of fabric
     - 1 yard of Interfacing 
     - Masking/Painters Tape

I started out by cutting out an 18 inch strip of white burlap and began taping chevrons with painters tape.
The I painted the burlap in a Ombray fashion....heavier in the middle and lighter on the outsides. **Be careful too much paint can leak through the tape.

Let the paint dry over night and peels the tape off.

I then continued to make the bag into a market bag. There is a similar tutorial that can be found HERE.

Also someone sent me this link when they found out which bag was mine....it's a painted chevron rug from House of Smith's...

Now, I just need to get to IKEA!
