We’ve seen a lot of fun muslin bags being used in weddings and events lately but how is it they get such a lovely design on their bags? Some people shell out and have them professionally silk-screened. Others own gocco machines and are easily able to transfer their designs that way. If you are unable to do either of those options, I found a great and easy alternative on Bloomize to get a design onto your muslin/fabric bag and pouches! What they did was create a stencil out of a punch and used some fabric paint and an iron to set it into the bag.
What they did:
“For the pouch, I took the liberty to add a tinge of pink by painting a heart. This was done by lightly dabbing fabric paint with the help of a stencil made by simply using a heart paper punch on a piece of glossy magazine cutout. A sheet of paper was slipped inside the pouch to prevent bleeding. Later I ironed the print over a pressing cloth.”
My suggestion could also be to print out your letters and design (Making sure it is more of a silhouette. Less detail makes it easier) and cut them out with an xacto on some thicker card stock and make a stencil out of that.
