You can never have too many tote bags on hand and recently I made a few little stylish market totes that I can take to the grocery store or farmers market.
To start I used a new product from ilovetocreate called Tulip Fashion Glitter Shimmer Transfer Sheets.
It is a like a sheet of glitter (but without the mess) that can cut into shapes and letters and then iron onto fabric. WAY easier than using glitter :)
I knew that I wanted to created doily inspired shapes from my shimmer sheets so I start by folding my sheet- corner over.
I trimmed the excess and was left with a triangle.
Then I folded it over again
Next I cut the outside edge with a curve
and then I went to town cutting out little shapes...think cutting paper snowflakes.
The result is a lovely piece of shimmer paper.
Next I peeled off the protective piece of plastic
and placed it onto the surface of a blank tote.
Using a press cloth I ironed town the shimmer sheet.
and removed the press cloth.
I decided to use some of the little hearts leftover and ironed them around the outside of the design.
Of course I couldn't just keep it simple and I decided to add some little embellishments with Beads in a Bottle- another super cool product (a little like 3-d paint but hardens up like beads once dry).
I added little embellishments to the surface of my design.
Of course I couldn't just make one so I made one in turquoise
