Canvas Tote Printing Project by Kristen Sutcliffe from New House Project
I love simple canvas tote bags to carry groceries or our family's supplies for a day out. I decided to dig through Saya's play dough tools to come up with new fun ways to print on a canvas tote. This is an easy project to do with your kids.
What You'll Need:
Blank canvas tote bag
Play dough tools (I used a small cookie cutter and a wavy roller tool.)
Lay out your blank canvas tote on a flat surface. Place a piece of felt inside the bag underneath where you are planning to print. This will help your print come out cleanly and also prevent the fabric paint from bleeding through to the other side of the bag.
Use a paint brush to apply fabric ink to the edges of the cookie cutter or wavy roller.
Press down firmly and evenly on the bag to print.
Experiment with different colors and tools to create interesting prints.
Don't forget to heat set the fabric paint according to the instructions on the bottle.
