Design and Decorate a simple Canvas Tote.
Hello NoBiggie readers, it’s Amy again from Delineate Your Dwelling. Summer is here and with summer comes many trips to the park, to the pool and in general just lots of running around. I know, I always have two or three go-to bags to quickly throw my things into and I am really excited to be sharing this easy to create Geometric Canvas Tote bag with you all today. This just may be my new favorite go-to tote!
A canvas tote
Two small strips of fabric
Iron-on Hem Tape
Acrylic Paint (and I also used Simply Spray gold shimmer fabric paint)
My first task on this project was to tape off the pattern with my painter’s tape.
Once the pattern was outlined, I used iron-on hem tape to secure my two blue strips of fabric to the tote. Honestly, iron-on hem tape has to be one of the greatest inventions ever.
Next I used a pouncer brush and filled in my next line with white acrylic paint. Now, if you plan on washing your bag, you will want to add a fabric medium to your paint. I skipped this step, as I don’t have plans to launder my bag.
The last step was adding my gold and mine is a fabric spray paint, so I had to very carefully tape off the rest of my tote with a bag. Be sure if you are will be using fabric spray paint as well, that your other lines are completely dry so as to not stick to the bag.
After all my paints had dried, I gave my geometric canvas tote the final touch by adding a removable clip flower!
I’m all set to go run around the town!
It was so simple to create but I love the clean lines and modern feel it gives off, all for (are you ready) $0.00! I used old scraps of fabric, had the paints already on hand and had bought a three pack of canvas totes a few months ago for only $7.99.
Are you ready to start making your new favorite summer tote?
