Have you ever bought something only to find that many others have the same thing?
Well that's what happened to me. I bought this cute canvas bag at Seagull Book months ago. It was only $4. I thought "what a great deal".
This bag is huge too, which is a must for me. I love it. The last month or so I've noticed more and more people have my bag;) Well, it all became to much for me when I literally picked up someone else's bag thinking it was mine. Here's what I did to fix the problem.
On my last trip to the store, I picked up some colored Sharpies. Wow! I found that you can spend a lot of money on Sharpies if your so inclined. The pack I bought was only $3.
First I laid the bag flat. I stuck a notebook inside to catch any bleeding through, but I didn't need too. Better safe than sorry, I guess.
Then I set to work coloring. I found that I could only do 2 or 3 flowers before needing a break. (Marker fumes are NOT good for you)
Here it is all finished.
Before using, stick it in the dryer for 20-30 minutes to "set the stain", so to speak.
