Thing #7:Casually Cute Canvas Tote
You know the feeling when you need a bag that has to fit everything you need but it never seems to exist when you need it?! Well, I do. And in my quest to be proactive I decided that if they don’t make a bag that fits my textbooks, notebooks, stationery, makeup, purse and mobile phone all-in-one then I was just going to have to make one myself. So I did!
Canvas is cheap, as were the fabric paints (which I intend to reuse anyway!) I made a basic tote with my trusty sewing machine and then began to decorate.
With thriftiness in mind, I bypassed the purchase of new stamps and went with the MYO option – potato stamps! After peeling and halving one potato I used cookie cutters to create the flower and tulip shapes.
Following the fabric paint instructions I stamped away. Don’t you just love the paints?! The colours rock.
Voila! My fabulous, handcrafted potato stamped tote bag!
All the other kids will be super jealous. 😉
