I made one of these totes for a little birthday gift and it was quick and easy. You can even include a coordinating crayon roll.
I purchased the totes awhile ago (okay years ago and found them in the “great craft room clean-up”) at Wal-Mart. I am not sure if they still carry them. I have seen similar totes at Hobby Lobby. You can use this machine applique technique to embellish t-shirts, onesies for babies, aprons……
All you need is Lightweight Heat n’ Bond Lite, a tote and a tiny bit of fabric.
Here is the alphabet templates I used. Each link below has the upper and lowercase letter. Click, download and print.
Trace your letter onto the paper (smooth) side of the HeatnBond Lite. The letter must be reversed. Following the HeatnBond instructions, iron it to the wrong side of the fabric that you want to applique to the tote.
Cut out letter and peel off the paper.
Finished! It is so quick and you have a really useful gift.
