Idea file: Use spray dye to give plain bags a tie dye effect

Last week I showed a quick and easy way to add a pen sleeve to a plain drawstring bag.  Today, I’ve got another idea to show you. 

I gave the plain bag a tie dye effect using SEI Tumble Dye – fabric dye in a spray bottle.  It took less than a minute for me to create the splattery design.  Then, I replaced the plain cotton drawstring with a coordinating ribbon.  Finally, I used a strip of fusible webbing to add some pom pom fringe around the top.

How simple is that!  And because it’s so quick to do, you could make up a bunch of bags in an evening.

Speaking of a bunch of bags, have you seen our giveaway for 100 cotton muslin bags from State Line Bag Co.?  If not, go to the giveaway post right now to get yourself entered.

Disclosure:  I received the bag used in this project free of charge from State Line Bag Company.  They made no request that I give them a good review in exchange for the bags.
