I love diy projects and wanted to share one with anyone who is looking to make their own tote bag.
I got this idea from Design Sponge.
You'll need a tote bag, paper dolies, paint brushes or a sponge and paint. Use fabric paint if you have it, if not acrylic works just as well.
I painted the corners of the bag with the dolie and then went back with a paint brush to touch up and fill in any areas that needed some fixing.
After all the corners were finished I painted my first initial freehand. If you're not comfortable doing that I would suggest printing a font that you love from a word document and lightly tracing it on the bag.
Filling the tote with goodies and giving it as a gift would be a cute (affordable) and thoughtful present.
