How to Make

  1. Find a plate, bowl and drinking glass of different sizes and draw a series of concentric circles in the centre of the drawstring backpack.
  2. Draw three lines across the circles and sketch out the words ‘Dad’s Car Kit’ in the centre of the design.
  3. Slip an empty cereal packet into the bag to prevent paint seeping through before colouring the circles with fabric paint. You may need to apply two coats.
  4. Draw some simple shapes on the back of the self-adhesive felt sheets and cut out. Try cars, traffic cones and spanners.
  5. Add detail to your cut-out shapes with more felt if necessary.
  6. Peel the backing paper off your motifs and arrange them around the painted circles. Iron the bag on the unpainted side on a low heat.
