Stylish shopping companion

We save the plastic bag and protect the environment, because from now on this shopping bag accompanies us. You want that too? Then follow the instructions.

What you need for the shopping bag:

  • Foam rubber plate (craft shop)
  • small piece of solid cardboard
  • All-purpose glue (eg from Pritt; Kaufhaus)
  • Cloth bag in blue
  • Fabric paint in white (eg from Kreul: Bastelladen, 20 ml about 2 euros)
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • brush
  • Paper as a base
  • Iron

And that's how easy it is:

1. Draw a motif (eg sheet) on the sponge rubber and cut it out.

2. Cut a piece of strong cardboard a little bit larger than the sponge rubber. Glue foam rubber in the middle with all-purpose glue, allow to dry briefly.

3. Place the fabric bag on a flat surface, underlay old newspapers and insert.

4. Coat the sponge rubber stamp thinly and evenly with paint and stamp on the motif in the desired number.

5. Allow all stamped motifs to dry thoroughly.

6. After the package insert of the fabric paint, fix the pressure by ironing from the left.
