New Item!: It's a...Bag?
Your eyes don't deceive you. Why yes, it is a bag!
I saw this cotton drawstring bag online. The first thing I thought? I can make this into calligraphy! I bought one, along with bottles of fabric paint to experiment with. Honestly finding the right ratio of fabric paint was harder than the actual calligraphy. You can't make this paint too runny or it'll go through the fabric. But it can't be too thick or it won't apply to the fabric at all. Such a finicky medium. On the positive side you can actually see my brush strokes.
In any case, have some practical art to hold all your stuff!
