DIY Gold Glitter Striped Muslin Bag Tutorial with Rebekah Faries

DIY Gold Glitter Striped Muslin Bag Tutorial
Curtsey Boutique Designer
Rebekah Faries
Rebekah is big into gift wrapping lately and so for her most recent tutorial she decided to try her hand at decorating bags. Curtsey Boutique muslin bags are perfect for tucking in smaller gifts when you don't feel like wrapping with paper.

Gold seems to be the color of the moment and feathers are fun and everywhere you look in the crafting world.  Today's DIY technique teaches you how to mimic the beautiful gold glitter bands on Rebekah's bag.

The secret is using double sided quick hem tape which can be found in any sewing store.  

Regular double sided tape won't stick to fabric well, but quick hem tape is made for fabric and holds beautifully.

1. Simply decide how many bands of color you want, trim to size and adhere. 

2. Be sure to rub all over with a bone folder (or your fingers) to guarantee great adhesion of the tape to the fabric.

3. Peel off the protective paper and cover generously with glitter.

4. Press the glitter into the tape before tapping off any excess.

Voila! Mess free bands of yummy gold glitter.

Add Baker's Twine and other embellies to jazz up your bag.
