My kids love these I SPY activities!  I have made them for a couple of holidays.  There favorite is the Christmas ornament one I made for Christmas.  Recently we were walking through the craft store and my kids spotted some Halloween buttons.  They asked if I could make them "I SPY bags" for Halloween.  Well, I love EVERYTHING Halloween and I couldn't resist those cute kids of mine. 

Supply List:

- a dozen or more awesome buttons
- 1 cup of Poly Pellets or bean bag filler (like this)
- 10" squared clear vinyl "fabric" (like this)
- matching thread and other sewing essentials (machine, scissors, cutting mat)

How to Make Your Own Fabric Paint

Did you know you can turn acrylic paint into fabric paint?

Maybe you'd like to stencil onto a throw pillow and need it permanent yet washable...or maybe you found a thrift store wallet and want to give it a new look with paint.

You can find what's called "Fabric Medium" Paint at most craft stores or online.

Simply mix the fabric medium with your favorite color acrylic paint and voila you have fabric paint!
You can play around with how much you want to mix. I've used two parts acrylic paint to 1 part craft medium.

This makes your finished project soft, washable and permanent.  Keeps the colors bright, and doesn't chip or peel as if you were using regular acrylic paint. Give it a try!

Have you tried this technique and have some tips to share? Please comment below.
