DIY Canvas tote bag with a modern design
Hello reader! If this is your first time here, welcome! I’m Ursula designer and blogger at kraft&mint. Today I’m sharing with you a modern design on a canvas tote bag. I plan to carry all the books we check out from the library in my new pretty canvas tote bag.
Why did I make this? Well, I’m tired of late fees and frantically looking for library books in my kids’ rooms. Instead, now I have them gather the books we owe and put them in my new canvas tote bag. Yay!
Let me show you how to design one for yourself ;)
DIY Canvas tote bag with a modern design tutorial
You will need, a canvas tote bag (mine is from the Michaels store,) two inks for rubber stamping (pink and green,) and the letter “S” rubber stamp (similar alphabet stamps. I found my “S” stamp at Michaels store.) Why did I choose the letter “S” you might ask? The letters “S” looks like a squiggly shape and with it, I designed the pattern for my tote bag.
- First, gather the supplies and practice the “S” pattern on a piece of paper.
- Second, put a sturdy book inside the tote bag, so you have a stable surface to stamp the bag.
- Third, use the green ink first and copy the pattern from the paper. Then, fill in the design with the pink “S.”
- Finally, repeat these steps on the other side of the bag.
Optional: add a pretty pom flair to the tote bag and then brag about your new creation ;) Ha!
Useful tip: When stamping the tote bag, if you notice the “S” imprint a little faded, just fill in the “S” with a brush and ink. Look at my video to see what I mean by this.
Loving using my entryway to store my new tote bag. Now how could I forget to return library books?
Until next time!
