Fun & Funky Tote Bag - Free Craft Project Instructions


Contributed by Amanda Formaro, Family Corner Magazine, with permission

Has your daughter outgrown her ribbons and lace and has long since ditched the princess decorations in her bedroom? Make this fun and funky tote bag for her sleepovers, dance class accessories, or even homework!


Materials Needed:
  • 1 Canvas Tote Bag
  • Small amounts of material in your choice of colors and patterns (we chose fun animal prints and polka dots)
  • Sheets of felt, in your choice of colors that coordinate with your fabric choices.
  • Pinking Shears
  • Wax Paper
  • Sponge applicator or paint brush
  • Aleene's "Ok To Wash It" Permanent Fabric Glue
  • Other Decorating Ideas:

Instructions

Lay tote bag out flat onto your work surface. Insert sheets of wax paper inside the tote bag. This will act as a barrier between the fabric glue and the other side of the tote bag.

Hint: We inserted a wood cutting board wrapped in wax paper to give us a more solid surface to work on.

Using the pinking shears, cut out different sized squares of fabric and felt. We also cut out hearts, you can choose any shape you like, but hearts and squares are the easiest.

The fabric glue takes a while to dry, so set your bag aside where it will not be disturbed, for at least a few hours, preferably over night. That's it!
