Grungy Bags

I have such an addiction for making things grungy.Grungy bags are one of my favorite things to make. So these are some examples of some of the various types of grungy bags I enjoy making. 


What's really nice is that these are so easy to make, and the plain muslin bags are so affordable, and I love affordable primitive crafting! I just dip my bags into my special grungy sauce mix several times, and then I wring them out quite a bit before laying them on a cookie sheet. Then I bake them in a 225 degree oven for 10 minutes or so, turning once. I watch them carefully while they're in the oven. Once they're dry I use a stencil and some stencil cream to stencil on the words I want on the front of the bag. Then to finish them off I just stuff them with some fiber fill. 

These bags come in all different sizes so there's lots you can do with them. They are cute as bowl fillers, or just sitting on a shelf. You could hang them from a peg rack too and they'd look very cute and prim.
