DIY shopping bags

Trendy bag designs – the easy way

Make a trip to the shops twice as much fun with these stylish fabric tote bags! Shopping can be enjoyable, but you can start having fun long before you go by decorating your own shopping bag. You don’t need to be an expert at designing to make beautiful, personalised creations like these – with edding textile markers, even novices can quickly get impressive results. Simply come up with an attractive motif (or copy one of ours) and away you go! edding textile markers and pens are ideal for all kinds of light-coloured fabrics such as cotton, silk and linen. There are two stroke widths and a range of 20 colours to choose from, including neon shades for a particularly vibrant effect. What’s more, they’re really practical for beginners and advanced crafters alike: with each of the edding textile sets – blues/greens, reds or assorted base colours – you have five perfectly colour-coordinated shades at your fingertips. When you’ve finished designing, heat-fix the motif with an iron and it will then be able to withstand wash cycles of up to 60°C.
