Hi there, I am Amy Warner of Sew Incredibly Crazy. Here to show you how to create a more personal tote that can take only a few minutes and a little imagination. My family and I love just about anything patriotic and with a few supplies, I was able to create this cutie.
USA Patriotic Totebag
The Supplies needed are:
HeatnBond® Lite Fusible Adhesive
Red and Blue Fabrics
A Premade Tote – this one was purchased at a local craft store for under $5
Coordinating thread – Aurifil white
Letters and or shapes that fit the desired area – This can be done by using Word or another computer program
Oliso Mini Iron
USA Totebag Pattern Instructions
Step 1: Trace the pattern onto the HeatnBond® Lite. If the pattern has letters on it, it will need to be reversed. Personalizing the tote with initials and hearts would be a great gift for a bridal party.
Step 2: Iron the fusible piece onto the fabric using an iron. This is the newest Oliso mini iron. I can’t say how much this little iron is loved.
Step 3: Cut out the letters and/or shapes. Arrange them onto the tote. Remove the paper backing and iron in place.
Step 4: Stitch around the fusible pieces.
Step 5: Take the newly finished project out on the town. Perhaps grabbing a quilt and head off to a picnic.
