Create a Custom Tote Bag using the Cricut Imagine. Check out the darling tote bag that Cindy Royal created for her granddaughter. Here is what she had to say about her project.
My granddaughter absolutely loves learning, so heading back to school is exciting for her. She has spent much of her summer playing ‘teacher’ with her pointer in hand teaching her students. Her students have been disguised as anything from plastic bowls, paper cups and books to blocks – whatever she found enough of close by to fill her classroom. She’s entering the first grade this month and I’ve embellished a bag to help tote her important 1st grade goodies back and forth.
I started with a store bought tote bag and went to my Cricut Imagine Machine to make it her own. For the background piece behind the tree branch, I printed the pattern onto white fabric. I then printed the branch onto that background and cut the piece to fit my tote. As I do with paper projects, I couldn’t resist layering this piece onto a piece of fabric to give it an edge before applying it to the tote bag.
I then print/cut the owl and sun from fabric. The flowers are from the Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge using patterns from Imagine Blast Off cartridge. These are print/cut from fabric stabilizer, rather than fabric, to give them a more airy look, then assembled with fabric glue and brad centers. The crown and the letters of her name are also print/cut from a stabilizer.
All pieces are fused to Heat and Bond Ultra before printing and cutting. Once they are cut, they are ready to iron onto the bag. Final embellishments included some rhinestones, buttons and string.
No sewing machine required to personalize a tote bag for your scholar using the Imagine! Just print and cut fabric and add some fabric glue.
