OOT bags - thoughts suggestions?

Recommended Posts

Ok I lack creativity but I want to save money on the actual bag for my OOT so I can put more inside-

 

I found these canvas bags at Micheals for $1.29 and they had a 25% off sale on top of that so I just bought some tulip paints and here we are...

 

I added my own little touch and wanted feedback and suggestions before I do the rest of them - these were the first ones so they are a little sloppy but i hope to get better once I do 50 of them - the palm tree is missing its trunk... I still have to get brown paint

They are a really good idea for a really good price. I really like the vivid colors. I can see though how this project may get a little messy. When using that kind of paint it gets really hard to not make it look smudged.

 

Have you thought about using stencils for a cleaner look? How about markers?

That's what I am afraid of! It is a bit messy and would be hard to fix if I messed it up - markers is probably a much better idea, I'm going shopping again this weekend and will have to look for some.

Thanks for the feedback!

I think you have a great start, I love the color combinations and designs. I think with a little practice you will get the hang of using the paint but fabric markers are neater so if they are not too expensive you might want to try those, it would save you time in the long run. If you stick with the paints just try practice squeezing it out evenly because they always come out in a big blob at first but you will get the hang of it.

I wonder if a paint pen would work. they are easier to control. They look really cute though & it will help you save some money. I painted my cups instead of buying screen printed cups. I saved a bunch so I was able to put more in the bags.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
