Read all instructions before beginning project. Refer to photo for color and design placement.

  1. Cover work surface with newspapers. Place a doily on newspaper, saturate with Hawaiian Fizz Fabric Spray Paint. Immediately position in place on bottom center of tote bag and use fingers to press doily to transfer pattern to bag. Repeat step with other doilies, changing sizes and color.
  2. Spray both sides of remaining doilies and allow to dry.
  3. Cut small triangles from stencil sheet. Peel stencil from backing and position on the left side along top edge of tote. Tape around edges to widen border; add paper towels to prevent overspray. Lightly spray Asphalt into stencil, two light coats rather than one heavy coat to prevent seepage.
  4. Remove stencil and place to the right; repeat step along top edge of tote. Allow to dry.
  5. Cut Fleur de Lis design from sheet, leaving as much border as possible. Center & place under triangle designs. Tape around edges, cover with paper towels and spray with Asphalt. Repeat on bottom left side of tote. Allow to dry.
  6. Apply Fabric Fusion to thick areas on back of doilies. Press in place on tote. Remove applique from packaging; place it on tote and cover with pressing cloth. Iron in place following package instructions.
