You can store all your dog-walking items in this cute drawstring bag.
Iron the freezer paper stencil to the right side of one of the pieces of cotton that you cut.
This is what your stencil should look like when its all done.

3. Cut the fabric into two 12-inch x 16-inch pieces. Lay out one piece of fabric right side up. Lay the freezer paper stencil over it. Iron the stencil to the fabric until the stencil adheres.


Sponge ink lightly over each stencil piece.

4. Squeeze ink into a bowl and daub some ink onto a sponge brush. Sponge all the areas within the stencils with the brush in an up-and-down motion, not a brushing motion. I used blue ink for all but one of the bones in the pattern.


This is what your stencil should look like when it's all done.

5. When the paint has dried to the touch, carefully peel up the stencil. Let dry about 20 minutes more. Cover the design with a cloth, then iron to heat-set.

To make the bag:


After you sew the two pieces together at the bottom, press open your seams. This is what it should look like on the right side.

1. Pin the two cotton pieces together right sides facing and pin at the bottom seam. Sew the bottom together with a 1/2-inch seam allowance. Press the seams open.

not too long, i did it in an afternoon (but i also had to design the pattern, so that's a big extra step!). but if you want to cut some steps you can either do the stencil on a pre-made bag or use printed material for the bag and skip the stencil part.
also, keep in mind that the freezer-paper stencils work on anything and it's a really easy way to print on clothing, home decor, accessories, etc, so you can take the stenciling technique and use it for something else!
