I'm having great fun sketching, stamping and stitching on these 8.5 x 11" muslin draw string bags.
|I carry my camera attachments in this bag.|
You've seen this inspiration before. I'm having eternal fun with this imagery.
I used water soluble crayon for the color on this bag.

I drew, in pencil, on the bag. I outlined it with a permanent pen, then colored in with color pencils.
From the oak leaf image, I carved my own stamp. Be sure and put wax paper inside the bag, when you stamp or paint on it.
I stamped the bag, and some shipping tags. You can see the acorn stamp I made too.
And of course, I hand stitched, using a chain stitch and a back stitch.
You can see my stitch guide here.
For this bag, I stamped first, using commercial stamps. Then I printed out a fleur de lis, cut it out and traced it, using a gel roller for fabric.
