Here is the tote before I go all crazy.
I started by making some crochet flowers in different shade of pink. Then I die cut some felt flowers using my Cuttlebug and Papertrey Ink felt and dies. For further info please see the previous two posts!
I wanted to put the girls' names on the bag, but I didn't want some lame iron-on lettering. Using my Gypsy and the font feature of the Paper Lace Cricut cartridge I welded the names together. I laid them out on my 12x12 mat leaving lots of space between the words. Then I cut the names out using vinyl.
I stuck the vinyl stencil onto the fabric tote making sure I put the insides of the letters in. Using my brayer, I made sure the vinyl was stuck well. Then using a fabric paint I painted the names. Easy peasy!
I waited for the paint to dry and carefully removed the vinyl. It worked awesome. The lines came out really clean.
Afterwards, I hot glued the crocheted and felt flowers around the names. A couple bedazzled rhinestone bling and fabric paint dots and I was done.
I hope my cousin likes the totes. But more importantly I hope her three little flower girls do too!!
