Add some color and flavor to your plain boring tote with a nice and personalized design. You can then stock up your new and fresh tote bag with fruits, eggs, and cheese as the fellow shoppers check out your bag! So without further ado let’s dig right in!
Here are 3 easy ideas to help you personalize your tote bag:
- Tulip Applique Design
Create a beautiful custom tote bag with this DIY tulip applique. For this, you will need a tote bag (obviously), any printed fabric of your choice, threads, fabric glue, scissors, needles, and pins.
All you have to do is cut three simple tulip shapes out of the fabric along with three sets of leaves. Use a single color/pattern fabric for each set of leaves matching the tulip fabric. Then secure the pieces in place with fabric glue. Outline with fabric stitch to give it a pretty effect. Once it’s done, you will have a simple and elegant floral tote perfect for summers!
- Bee Tattoos on Tote
For a trendy and minimalistic design try out the bee tattoos! For this, you will need a tote bag, rollers, ink, tray, lino board, and lino cutting tools. Draw a simple bee pattern on the lino board. You can pick whichever you like. Cut the details in your pattern remembering to cut away from your body as you go – we don’t want any little accidents.
Once the whole pattern has been linocut, cut out the bee with a pair of scissors. To stamp the bee on your tote, coat the lino stamp in ink and press down your bee stencil on the surface of your bag. Remember to slide in a paper inside the page so it doesn’t get stained. That’s it!
- Circuit Iron-on Design
This is a great option for all DIY enthusiasts. Create your own custom-made circuit bag and impress everyone around you! For this project, you will need a circuit machine, grip mat, drawstring bag, a weeding pin, vinyl application tool, and glitter vinyl.
Place the glitter sheet on the grip board, load into the machine, and let it do its thing. Once the pattern is cut remove the glitter sheet and cut the outline of the pattern with scissors. Weed away the excess using your hand or pin. Once removed, place the pattern where you want it to go on the bag and press it down with a hot iron. Double-check the vinyl to make sure it is stuck properly. Finally, remove the plastic sheeting and fill your gorgeous bag with anything you like!
You can pick a personalized tote bag project to suit your skills, taste, and favorite craft. You can use these tote bags to pack groceries in the mart, hold your gym stuff or carry shoppers in mall! Use anyone of the ideas mentioned above and create a beautiful tote bag – don’t forget to add your own unique details in the design!
