    Fabric Paint Method

  1. Download and cut out your design from the removable vinyl.
  2. Weed the NEGATIVE of your vinyl design (meaning discard the pieces of vinyl that are the area you want painted), creating a stencil.
  3. Place the weeded design on the makeup bag blank. Gently press the vinyl down to make a good seal.
  4. Use the fabric paint to fill in the negative design.
  5. Allow the paint to dry for about 30 minutes, then gently remove the the vinyl. The paint may still be tacky, so be very careful. Allow the paint to dry fully.
  6. Touch-up any of the paint that went under the edges of the stencil. Allow this last bit of paint to dry completely and enjoy! photo collage tutorial of how to make a diy disney character cosmetic bag

Fabric Dye Method

  1. Place your makeup bag into a pan and don your gloves.

  3. Iron the dried makeup bag to set the color.
  4. Download and cut out your design from the heat transfer vinyl.
  5. Weed your design, NOT in the negative.
  6. Place the design onto the makeup bag and, using the EasyPress Mini, heat press the vinyl onto the makeup bag.
