Hey, nice to see you.

Nowadays there are more and more shops that have already completely banish the plastic bag and that is the right way. In order to do the same, a fabric tote bag is a great alternative.

I would like to show you how to beautify your tote bag. To make it a one of a kind shopping bag and a real eye-catcher.

What you will need:

First, put the cardboard into the bag as padding, which prevents the color from showing on the back of the bag. Put the pattern onto the cardboard, you should see the pattern well through the fabric. Now you can begin to trace the contours with a pencil onto the fabric.


Tip: Test your sharpie on an inconspicuous place, because some felt tips may run on the fabric.

This canvas tote bag can be reused again and again and fits well into a purse or into the glove compartment.

And here are some great examples of the solar effect I created on my bags:
