Fabric paint might work, but I’m thinking what would be best would be screenprinting a la Yudu, or one of the speedball screenprinting kits.

a screen printer works really well (similar to a Gocco, but bigger) Im making some for my Bridesmaid or Best Man.  Yudos are pretty much the same thing, they’re just super expensive.  you can get a wooden screen printer at an art store for about $50 plus paint.

Don’t try an iron on transfer!!!  the iron will melt the bag. 

I used screenprint on a beach bag made of similar fabric.   (in case you were wondering how I found out they melt!) Yell

I used PhotoEz.  Cheaper than Yudu.

Maybe a stencil and spray paint?  Depends on if you can make a stencil though.

how about stamps and ink?  As long as I’m understanding correctly, I think it would look great and not be too hard to do at all!

Sure, just google! But stamps bigger than 3 x 3″ tend to get pretty costly, since they get more difficult to make. 🙂

you could always take them to a screen printer and have them do it!  its super easy, google one in your local area.  lots of times they will help you with the design as well.
