Create your own shopping bag

A fabulous present for anyone who loves shopping!

We never leave the house without a bag, whether we’re out shopping, going for a stroll or off to a party. And now you can create your own personalised designer bag with the help of edding textile pens. You don’t need to be an artist to make a fabric shopping bag as lovely as this: even novices will be able to paint the design in no time at all. Simply think up your own design or copy one of our creative flower motifs and get started. Hand-painted shopping bags make a brilliant present idea for close friends – or, if you can’t bear to part with it, for yourself! edding textile markers and textile pens are ideal for all manner of light-coloured fabrics, including cotton and linen. You can choose from a range of 20 colours in two stroke widths, including neon shades for a particularly vibrant effect. The special feature of the textile pen sets is that they each come in a carefully co-ordinated range of colours, including blues and greens, reds and assorted base colours. When the design is ready, iron your bag. The design will then be able to withstand wash cycles of up to 60°C.
