NL2134 Posted August 8, 2013 #1 Share Posted August 8, 2013 I've been doing a lot of searching for the perfect OOT bag at the perfect price. I found some blank canvas bags I like, but want to spruce them up a little bit. I want to keep them somewhat simple, so people may actually use them after the trip, though. While searching, I came across the following link: http://blog.hgtv.com/design/2013/05/14/weekday-crafternoon-anchor-stenciled-boat-bag/ It shows how to stencil & paint a design onto canvas bag using freezer paper stencils. Her end result looks awesome. I've been debating doing anchor design, similar to what was done in the video, or maybe a palm tree image (see attached images). I may not do any wording on it, just to make it more usable after the trip or to make it applicable to my non-sailing guests also. But, I loved the idea and it seems so simple and relatively foolproof (easy to do, stencils are reusable, and paint doesn't leak under stencil), so I wanted to share it here for others to check out. I bought 2 canvas bags so far to test out (one beige color that will get blue paint and one blue bag that I'll do white or silver paint... our wedding color is navy blue with silver/gray accent color). I hope to try it out this weekend and will let all of you know how it turns out and post pics of my final products. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
