This post may contain affiliate links!


Guys! I have been on a coloring pages kick! I love them! I even started drawing crafty themed ones (stay tuned!) And I got this brilliant idea to make one on cloth using puff paint (at about 1:20 in the morning when I was trying to sleep!) It worked AWESOME! I love it so much! Check it out!

Here is what your need: (I bought all the supplies at Michaels.)

-Canvas Tote bag

Tulip fabric paint (I got a big bottle…but only used about half and this tote is a pretty big size!

-foam core board



I cut the foam core board down to fit inside my tote bag so it will keep it’s shape and the fabric paint wouldn’t leak down through to the other side. (it actually doesn’t leak through at all…but I wanted to be safe–not sorry!)

Then..you start! I actually looked at lots of fun coloring page inspiration to see what I liked..(you can go here to see lots of examples.)

This took me about 2 hours to do. I just worked my way around with the big designs first and add small filler at the end. Then let dry. (I will tell you this…There are some I drew…and HATED as soon as they came out. but when you start adding all the stuff around it and fill it in they all kind of go together. So you can totally pull this off!

I actually can’t decide if I liked it left black and white or if we should color it!
