heart tote bag

I thought it would be fun to do something festive this week in honor of love day. sent me some tote bags a little while ago, and I thought I’d use one for some Valentine’s day fun. I originally was going to do a blue bag/green heart combo, but after seeing the newest Lucky magazine, I decided to have some fun with the colors.
First, I dyed my tote bag with Rit Dye. {Instructions on how to dye here. The process also shrunk my bag a tiny bit, so ya know.} Then I drew a heart on some transparency film and cut it out.
I taped my new stencil on the bag…
…and got to the fun part. Painting!
I used two coats total of fabric paint.
Let dry for a few hours and presto! New festive tote bag.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I hope you all feel super loved.
