DIY Printed Tote Bag
It’s time for some sewing and printing, and all this in less than 2 hours!
First we sew our tote bag. Megan did an awesome job with her tutorial, so go and see her for the how-to.
DecoArt asked me to try one of their new products called Ink Effects, so this is what I am using to print on my freshly sewed tote bag.
Ink Effects is a transfer ink, that you simply paint on standard copy paper and use an iron to transfer it onto a piece of fabric, in our case the tote bag.
Make sure you mirror your writing, otherwise you will have a bad surprise (yes, I know what I’m talking about, lol). If you use cotton fabric or other fabric that has more than 30% cotton, you have to spray it with the basecoat before.
