Use fabric paint to make a DIY craft tote bag. Take your craft supplies on the go with a handy canvas tote and custom canvas pencil bags. This craft supply tote would make a fantastic gift!
I am a bit of an on-the-go crafter. See, I don’t have a dedicated craft room of home office. I have a closet office and a large dresser filled to the brim with craft supplies. So, when I work on craft projects, I often do it in the living room or at the kitchen table.
This means that I find myself gathering supplies in a basket or bag so that I can go work at a table in another room. I decided to make things a bit more structured by making a dedicated craft supply bag. Now, I can gather all of my supplies and take them on the go to work wherever I want… a friend’s house, a coffee shop, or just my kitchen table.
If you have a crafter in your life, this DIY bag would make a fantastic gift!
I stenciled a fun quote on this canvas tote, perfect for carrying my craft supplies:
Then I sprayed these canvas pouches, that can carry markers, notebooks, and other small to medium-sized crafting supplies:
Supplies needed to make this Craft Tote Bag
- Canvas tote
- Canvas pouches
- Tulip Color Shot fabric spray paint in black
- adhesive fabric stencils
- alphabet letters
- black fabric paint and pouncer brush
- ruler and pencil
- iron and ironing board
Bag #1 – A Stenciled Craft Tote Bag
- Start with your canvas tote. Unfold and iron it if needed.
- Measure out four even lines with a ruler and lightly mark them off with a pencil.
- Use the ruler as a guide for a straight line, then line up the letter stencils to create your quote.
- Load a pouncer brush with black fabric paint. Using a straight up-and-down motion, stencil the letters onto the tote.
- Before the paint has fully dried, carefully peel the stencils off the bag.
- Set the bag aside and let the fabric paint fully dry.
Bag #2 – A DIY Craft Supply Pouch
- Lay a canvas pouch flat.
- Place the alphabet stickers on the pouch and smooth flat.
- Optional: iron. If the stickers don’t stick well to the canvas, use an iron. Lay small piece of thin cotton fabric over the stickers and iron (no steam) on a low setting. This will re-activate the adhesive and give you crisp lines when you paint.
- In a well-ventilated area, spray the fabric paint over the stickers.
- Before the paint has fully dried, carefully peel the stickers off the canvas.
- Set the bag aside, and let the paint fully dry before use.
