How to Make

  1. Collect some natural leaves from outside.
  2. Use a paintbrush to cover your leaf in green paint. Ensure the paint covers the whole of the leaf.
  3. Press the leaf onto the fabric bag and hold in place for a few seconds.
  4. Carefully lift up the leaf, revealing the pattern on the bag.
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 multiple times to create a leaf pattern on your bag.

Top Tip

To prevent paint seeping through to the other side of the bag, place a piece of cardboard inside the bag before painting. Paint the back of the leaf to make the lines stand out more.
