Pictures of Karl Lagerfeld’s unique ‘Karl Who?’ bag have been everywhere on the web and in the papers in the past week (http://www.thefrisky.com/post/246-quick-pic-karl-who/). It’s so very recession with its natural canvas look, yet so stylish.
Just because this is a one off, we believe it shouldn’t stop you having something a little ‘Lagerfeldish’ too. With the help of DYLON® fabric paints you can create your own cheeky little DIY ‘Karl Who?’ kit:
Take one plain canvas bag with long handles (available at www.thecleverbaggers.co.uk) - Cost: about 86p plus delivery
One little pot of black DYLON® fabric paint (visit www.dylon.co.uk for your nearest stockist) - Cost: about £2.25
And then get to work with a brush and your natural creativity….
Cost: about a quid
And bingo! You could give yourself a unique bag for under a fiver! If you feel inspired to have a go at creating a ‘Karl Who?’ masterpiece or even your own named piece and have a photo to share, you can find us at www.twitter.com/dyetodye or email your link to email@example.com and we’ll tweet about it.
If you have created any other DIY fashion masterpieces using fabric dyes or paints, do let us know! Have fun!
p.s. We recommend that you wash canvas/cotton bags before painting, as finishes can affect fabric paints.
