I mentioned on twitter that I painted another bag that didn't turn out so well. It was a canvas tote with writing so be sure to use primer if you need to cover up a design first. If you can find the color you want, I'd definitely recommend using fabric paint on canvas instead of spray paint. Additionally, make sure you have that tape down securely at the edges!
This how-to is for spray painting leather though, so follow the simple steps below!

I have thought about making the design highlight the embossed leaf/feather design more, but I like the simplicity of stripe of neon showing through. What do you think- did I make the right call?
