Kraft Monster : West Elm Shoulder Bag

West Elm Shoulder Bag

I used my black acrylic paint and added some acrylic fabric paint medium as per the directions said. Slowly start filling in the blank spaces.

After about an hour, remove the masking tape.

Next, to mimic the black stripes along the West Elm bag handles, grab some black ribbon and sew them at fairly regular intervals.
Cut the ribbon to be wider than the strap and then after they were all sewn on, cut them down to size.
To get the gold color, wrap the entire bag in a plastic bag and tape down the edges just at the edge of the last black stripe.
It takes two quick swipes and you'll have the perfect shimmery gold.
