Instructions for Mandala Drawstring Backpack

  1. Pre-wash your drawstring backpack. Do not use fabric softener.
  2. Insert a piece of cardboard inside the backpack. This will ensure that the ink will not transfer to the backside of the bag.
  3. You can use a pencil to draft your design first but that isn’t necessary.
  4. When using the DecoColor Fabric Marker, you should depress the tip of the marker on a piece of scrap paper first to get the ink started. If you feel your marker getting dry while you are designing your mandala, you can depress again on a piece of scrap paper. While drawing with the DecoColor Fabric Marker, do not depress the tip.
  5. Create circles on the bag using a compass or even clear bowls from the kitchen. Clear bowls are a great tool because you can see where you are creating your design. This will help maintain the shape of the mandala.
  6. Once you have two or three circles mapped out on the bag, you can start creating the inside designs. It’s best to use a ruler for any straight lines.
  7. Allow your bag to dry for an hour. Then heat set by placing a piece of cloth over your design and ironing it on a low setting.
