A bag for Fat cats
1 Print mirrored images using a laser printer or photocopier (inkjet will not work).
2 Cut out images from prepared printouts.
3 Colour images with the pastels.
4 Tap the paper against the table to get rid of the excess powder.
5 Put the image face down on top of the bag and hold it in place.
6 Brush wintergreen oil on the wrong side of the image until you can see the wet image through the paper.
7 Using a wooden stick, rub the image until the colours transfer to the bag. The harder you rub, the better a transfer you will get. Be careful not to move the fabric or the paper, or your image will blur.
8 Lift a corner to see if the image has been transferred. Continue rubbing if it has not.
9 Spray a layer of fabric coating on the surface of the bag.
10 Hang the bag in a well-ventilated area for a day to let the smell of the oil evaporate.
