This is because it makes it easier for you to centralise your block print after you have stitched the sewing pattern together. bag-sewing-patterns-art-craft-ideas

This bag was made by block printing with our Colouricious printing blocks onto the fabric and then the fabric sewn together to make the bag. We recommend you use our Colouricious fabric paint as they are easy to fix with a simple iron and they are machine washable so you can keep on using your bag!

Here we have used some blocks from our Colouricious leaf wooden blocks to create an exciting personalized pattern. By using a lighter colour and a liner block this creates a background pattern then with the brighter/ bolder colours over the top creates the eye catching pattern for your shoulder bag.

Get confident with your sewing machine using your own simplicity pattern.

To create this eye-catching pattern we recommend you use our Colouricious fabric paints because they are easy to fix with simple ironing and then the fabric is permanently fixed.

Happy Block Printing!
