Helloooooo Craftey friends! I have been out of the blogosphere for a little while now, so I am very happy to be making my return today. What better way to make my comeback than with something a little sassy?! I am a serious tote bag addict and when I found blank tote bags at Hobby Lobby for $1.99, I knew those bad boys were coming home with me. I love witty quotes on bags, so I thought it would be fun to break out the flocked HTV and #getcraftey.
This is a super simple project and it's great because with a blank canvas tote, your possibilities are endless! I love frugal projects that are versatile because once you get this how-to under your belt, this can be a project that you can repeat on multiple occasions whether it be for teacher gifts, bridesmaid gifts, a tote for your kids, a sassy little bag for a new mom, the list could really go on forever. Let's get this party started!
Here is what you will need:
- Color Chimp Flocked HTV
- Craftey Weeding tools
- Cutting mat
- Silhouette Cameo or similar machine
- Heat press or iron
- Blank canvas tote
Since this is a project using heat transfer vinyl, you will want to be sure to mirror your image.
Select heat transfer, flocked as your material.
Load your heat transfer vinyl onto your cutting mat with the flocked side facing up and then send the job to the machine!
Once the cutting has completed, weed away the excess vinyl and then use your weeding tools to weed away the smaller pieces. (How many times can I use the word "weed" in one sentence?!)
You will then place your tote bag on the plate of the heat press and press the HTV to your bag!
Slowly peel away the covering and voila!
You can mix up the HTV colors, customize the quote, or put whatever your heart desires on the tote!
Gotta love a quick, easy, sassy project. Be sure to head over to the Craftey shop to find the materials used in this project, including the Color Chimp Flock heat transfer vinyl and check back to the Craftey community often for more fun and easy project ideas!
Happy crafting y'all.
