DIY printed nautical beach bag



This is another project that I’ve made for my business, Less Grafting More Crafting – sorry for another cross-post, but I’m just so chuffed with this!


We’ve been posting about this summer’s nautical trends on our blog and decided to design a project that you can make at the weekend. We were keen to do some fabric painting, and this is the result! It’s a DIY tutorial post so we take you through each step, and you can download the PDF template too. To see the full tutorial, click here. I’d love to hear what you think!
