DIY Watermelon print tote bag by Wimke

It's a trend, these watermelon prints are everywhere during the summertime! I wanted to do make something with this summery print. The girls are going on a school trip. I wanted to make a summerbag with watermelons on it, where they can keep their sandwiches , drinks and sweets in it.

What you'll need:
* Potato
* Acrylic paint - Red & Green
* Brush
* Black marker
* Canvas bag

Step 1: Iron the bag smooth. You cut the potato through the middle.

Step 2: This will become your stamp. To avoid pushing through of the paint, you can put a magazine in the bag. Put the red paint on a palette or any (unwanted) flat surface and press the potato into the paint. Stamp the potato onto the bag.

Step 3: Paint a green semicircle around the potato stamp with the brush.

Step 4: To finish off the watermelon, use the marker to draw the seeds of the watermelon.

Step 5: Allow the bag to dry and it is ready for a school trip or a day out to the beach!Wimke

Thank you Wimke! Watermelons are indeed a great part of the summer time..
