DIY: Tote Bag

My friend Jessica asked me to help her make a cute summer tote bag. We ended up making a craft night out of it!! Here are the steps we took:
  1. I created the images on my Cricut and cut it out on Freezer Paper. 
  2. We then ironed the Freezer Paper stencil onto the tote bags. 
  3. Next, we inserted a paper bag inside the tote bag. You can use anything that will stop the paint from bleeding through to the back of the bag. 
  4. We then painted the totes using fabric paint and a foam brush. 
  5. We immediately removed the Freezer Paper stencil from the bags. If you leave the Freezer Paper on the bags for too long, it's hard to remove and the paint is more likely to bleed through.
