How to Make

  1. Use scissors to cut a round sponge into a triangle shape. Then cut a smaller triangle shape into the sponge to create a triangular arrow type shape.
  2. Repeat step 1 to create three more sponge shapes.
  3. Dip one of your sponge stamps into some red paint, then push it onto a fabric bag. Lift away the stamp to reveal the shape on the bag.
  4. Repeat step three a few times on the front of the bag in random places.
  5. Repeat steps 3-4 using the a different sponge and blue paint. Then with yellow paint, then with green. Leave to dry.

Top Tip

To prevent paint seeping through to the other side of the bag, place a piece of cardboard inside the bag before painting. Make sure the whole of the edge of the sponge is covered in paint before stamping.
