Stylish and practical, a canvas tote makes the perfect beach bag, reusable grocery bag, or just plain old everything bag. This funky geometric design evokes mountains, but you can create any design you'd like. Use the tape to block off stripes, squares, or multicolored panels and make it your own. The project is so simple, you can easily make a whole batch of them to give as homemade gifts!

What You Need

  • Plain canvas tote
  • Iron
  • Masking tape
  • Paintbrush
  • Fabric paint

Step 1: Tape Off Design

Lay your tote out on a flat surface. Tape off your first design as desired.

Step 2: Paint Design

Use fabric paint to fill in the area you taped off. Allow to dry before peeling off the tape. Repeat with other colors. (Overlapping shapes are encouraged!) When you are satisfied with your design, let dry completely.

Step 3: Make it Permanent

Set paint with an iron on the cotton setting. Place a piece of paper or scrap cloth over the design to protect it while ironing. Flip tote over and repeat the process from Step 1 if you'd like to paint both sides.
