FABRIC PAINTING ON A KNAPSACK

FABRIC PAINTING ON A KNAPSACK

August 22nd was my friend’s son’s 5th birthday. I was thinking of gifting him something unique as I am tired of gifting books and toys. I wanted something which he would enjoy and use at the same time. I also wanted it to be personalized. I pondered over all the possibilities and Yo came up with the idea of a knapsack. I thought that would definitely be different from the other gift ideas, but I didn’t want to buy a Cartoon knapsack or the general kiddy ones that are usually bought for kids. I wanted the knapsack to be personalized too, so went hunting for a knapsack which will have some place for me to do fabric painting and finally found this elegant knapsack with space to write on. We decided to buy it. It was a bit over budget, but since I got the one I wanted, I decided to go for it. I brought the knapsack home and was thinking of what to paint, I was afraid to spoil the expensive knapsack. I had also bought some expensive fabric paints and brush. It was the first time I was going to use a brush and fabric paints in tubes to write. I was scared to paint anything and spoil the bag so I decided I will just write his name. I chose black as the knapsack is red and grey in color and black would go best with it.

So I wrote his name“KRISH” using the Yummy Apology font.

This one's for Priyanka who keeps inspiring me to do more and more fabric painting. Every time I post a fabric painting , she will comment by saying " Iam waiting for more" She was also the person who inspired me to start fabric painting in the first place with the T-shirt gifted to me during our first KC-meet. Thanks Priyanka.
