How to Design a Cute Spring Tote Bag for Girls

Spring has finally arrived!  Hooray! One of the things I love about the season is the vibrant color options that Spring has to offer. To celebrate Spring, I decided to make a cute little stenciled canvas tote bag, personalized for a dear little girl we know, who will be celebrating her birthday this weekend. I really love how cute this tote bag for girls came out and I hope she likes it.

Materials needed:

Making this stenciled tote bag is super easy. 


I started with a plain canvas tote bag.

First, I taped the stencil onto the fabric to keep it from moving.  Next up, I started filling in the stencil design with the fabric marker.



Then I removed the stencil.  At this point I was just about done.

The final step I took was to iron the reverse side of the design using a hot iron (cotton setting) to set the design and voila. The result is a super cute tote bag for girls that is perfect for Spring!
