Canvas Tote Bag

So I saw a really cute bag that, Leslie (http://cardmkrleslie.blogspot.com/) had on the Cricut message board as well as her blog site. With her HUGE help, she got me a bag at her local X-mas shop, since I don't have one here, and she sent me the bag and some Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV). So after being scared about what to do, I decided that I would cut with contact paper to see how the cuts would come out and to also see the sizing for my bag. Here's the bag before I got started:
here's what I did with my contact paper cuts.......a LO to use for later on:

Here's DS and me working on what to cut on the new vinyl:
After cutting the vinyl....it was time to iron-on

Next it was time to check on the pieces to see if they were ready.....

So here I am peeling the plastic layover off the shells:

The front completed!!!!!

Here's where the vinyl did something weird. I'm not sure because the image is with thinner/smaller pieces or what, but here's my name on the back of the bag:

So that's pretty much it!!!! I really enjoyed spending my time working on this too!!!!

Please leave a comment, I'd love to hear what you think!!!!


  1. Suzanne,
    I love the bag. I also like where the "vinyl did something weird", it makes is look kind of like sand. So I think it is a nice touch
    Thanks for sharing
