The hubby needed a travel bag for his various toiletries for when he goes out of town. I wanted it to be sorta manly, for the rugged and tough kind of guy that he is. So I stood in front of my my fabric stash and not a single piece would work for this. Apparently I don’t collect masculine looking fabric, except for a few solid pieces in gray, blue and black. But, a solid seemed to plain and boring. THEN, I got the idea for making my own masculine fabric. I pulled out my Lotta Prints and from there knew exactly where I would go with this.
Potato printing isn’t just for kids anymore. Oh no, it’s way more fun as an adult and it worked out fabulously.
I made a very simple design onto the potato using my linoleum cutters. Then I used Tulip Soft Fabric Paint, mixing my own navy blue color, used a sponge to appy the paint to the potato and did a few practice tries on paper. I am really surprised with the results and the hubby loves his new travel pouch.
