In order to make an ombre style custom beach bag, you will need the following: a canvas tote bag, dye, gloves, a paper place, sponge brush, stencils, fabric paint, containers, white vinegar, and water. Fill a container with hot water. Allow the tote to soak in the dye for approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Mix up the dye, according to the instructions on the bottle, except add 1/2 cup of vinegar. Put on your gloves. Make sure that you are using a protected surface. Dip the bottom of your tote in the dye, until is as dark as you want it. Then, rinse it. Allow it to dry. Place your stencil on the bag. Dab the paint on, in order to transfer the stencils. When it dries, then you can use it right away.
