DIY: DIY Stamped Canvas Tote Bag

March 28, 2016

Use a few supplies to create a customized easy stamped canvas tote bag that you can color with fabric markers

If it ain’t brunch with unlimited mimosas, then I want no parts of it. That’s a lie. Usually, I’ll just eat my body weight in bacon and call it even. Anyway you slice it, brunch is easily the best invention of modern time. One meal when you can eat waffles, bagels right along side pasta carbonara and lasagna. I am so so into brunch and I have the diy stamped canvas tote bag to prove it.

Today’s project is a really easy to do and if you’re new to stamping this is a great way to give it a whirl. Here’s how it works:

Use a few supplies to create a customized easy stamped canvas tote bag that you can color with fabric markers

You’ll need:

  • a flat canvas tote bag
  • fabric markers
  • permanent StazOn black ink pad
  • assorted clear stamps (I love the Upper Alpha, Bacon Break, Coffee Town, Cuppa Coffee, and Pizza Cake from Sweet Stamp Shop)
  • you’ll also need a clear acrylic stamping block (not pictured)

If you wait too long between inking the stamp and pressing it onto the bag, you may get a faded impression. Continue stamping the words portion of your design.

TIP:

Don’t color in the entirety of each image. Leaving a little white space makes the finished design look better. Too much coloring can makeย it tough to see the details of each individual image.
