DIY Custom Cat Face Photo Purse


Show the world how great your own little, furry, weirdo is by walking around with a picture of their face on a bag with this inspired tutorial by Instructables member push_reset.

This bag rules them all, everyone enjoys it and always ask where I got it, it’s even been named, christened as “Kitty Bear” by a 5 year old while I was waiting for the bus […] However, nothing is as satisfying as being able to make your own. This instructable will show you how to create one with any image you want, be it a meme, a pet photo or… heck it doesn’t even have to be a cat face (but why wouldn’t you want that!).

The key to this ingenious tutorial is printing the images directly onto fabric, which is achieved by backing cotton fabric with large format label sheets and sending it through a desktop printer. Not only are there plenty of wonderful bags that you could make with this process, there are loads of other projects that you could make with this customized fabric printing process!
