I decided to go with a fish theme for the beach. you Draw your design on cardboard and cut out to use it as a template. You can also use stencils if you want to don’t to draw it. Mark your template on the back of the fabrics. Cut your fabrics. I like to use this small precision scissors, since they are good for cutting tight curves smoothly.

Grab your Mod smorgasbord of fabric and load up on your brush. Brush-medium on the back of your fabric. Apply liberally. Put your fabric piece in your pocket, and you smooth out the fabric. I smoothed it with my brush. Make sure there are no bubbles or wrinkles, you want it nice and flat and adhered to, when it dries. Dab some of the decoupage medium on the back of your accents, if you are with a, in my case, the eyes and fins. Put it on your forms as you wish. Flatten them down with the brush or your finger. Let the plaster is dry, then go back over it with a thin layer of medium to seal the material, if you like. * For my second bag I have a big patch of tissue on my vinyl cheapie. Once it dried I applied the ric-rac trim to glued it with fabric glue on some buttons in the corners, and a few paper flowers to cover the button holes. figcaption>*These two little boogers tore me the flowers while I was in the other bag was photographed so you had to be in order to models as a punishment. Are my flowers not to glue with E6000, because it seems to be fabric glue is strong enough to resist puppy mischief.I love how my dead decoration! I used scraps for my fishy dead.
