– Raffia straw market bag
1. Using masking tape, about 20cm up from the bottom of the tote mark off a straight line, below which will be spray painted yellow.
2. Go around the whole of the bag with the tape making sure to stick it well and keep a very straight line.
4. In a well ventilated space, turn the bag upside down and spray paint. I used a light coat of white paint first so that the yellow would pop when I applied it. The trick with spray painting is to apply a number of light coats rather than a single heavy coat. That way you won’t have any drips and the colour with be nice and smooth.
5. Leave to dry overnight. Finish the bag with pom poms or tassels of your choice.
