First, wash the bag to remove any finishing agents in the fabric and leave to dry. Insert the cardboard into the bag to prevent ink bleeding through to the back.
Using the textile pen, draw leaf motifs all over the bag, ensuring that the pattern is symmetrical both vertically and horizontally. Draw the outlines first and then colour in one half of each leaf however you wish.
Iron the bag without steam to fix the design. Your designer accessory is now ready and is even wash-resistant up to 60°C!
