Applique Tote Bag
I've shared other applique projects with you in the past, so here I am once again.
I need to express how easy this is! And I want to encourage you to try it!
I found this cute bag at Hobby Lobby (they have other styles and colors too).
and before cutting it out I ironed on the applique adhesive
(like Heat n' Bond-found at Wal-mart, Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's). Then I cut my letter out.
I grabbed this lid and traced around it for my circle. Ironed on the applique adhesive.
Then cut the circle out.
First I ironed the circle on and then the K on top of it.
I used a zig-zag stitch in contrasting thread (teal in this case) and sewed around the edge of the circle. Then using a straight stitch (with black tread this time) I sewed around the K.
I filled the bag with new markers, drawing paper, fun paper clips and binder clips, a pad of small scrapbook paper, a clipboard and tape (this girl loves using tape!)
We were away from home the weekend of Katelyn's birthday,
so we had our own little celebration in our hotel room.
She really does love her new bag! She's been carrying it everywhere, so that makes me pretty happy!
