How do you carry a watermelon?
Why, in a watermelon bag of course.
Inspired by a watermelon t-shirt seen online while we were planning craft activities for Guide camp, we bought calico bags, red and green fabric dye and seed shaped beads.
The girls dip dyed their bags and, when they were happy with the colour, we rinsed and dried them before decorating them. Most girls opted out of sewing on the beads, preferring to write slogans on with fabric pen, but this is Oldest Daughter’s – and I did the sewing…
In this picture, the darker bag is mine. Dip dyeing whilst being in charge meant it got left in significantly longer each time and, as usual for the woman who can’t see a straight line, the pattern is wonky. However I will salvage this with strategically placed ‘seeds’ so the finished bag looks more purposefully arranged!
