Hey there…we hope your week is going well. We are busy making holiday lists and wishing time would slow down just a bit 🙂 We have a lot of holiday items we want to share with you and one of them is this cute burlap tote bag.
I purchased this bag last year and never got around to doing anything with it. I did use my 40% off coupon which makes this bag just over $8.00.
I had a definite idea in mind of what I wanted to create. It was just a matter of finding exactly what I needed. I needed a small piece of red plaid fabric. I purchased this men’s shirt from the thrift store. It still had the original tags on it – I purchased it for $1.00. I also washed it before I used it in this project.
Pull the paper backing off…you can see the glossy adhesive on the back of the fabric. The glossy side of the cutout was then placed on top of the burlap tote. After I was sure it was exactly where I wanted it, I carefully ironed it into place. Using a medium heat iron with no steam, each section was ironed firmly for 8 seconds. This perfectly bonds the deer head without having to sew it into place.
I think this is a perfect bag for when I go out Christmas shopping. This would also make an excellent gift for a special someone…hostess, teacher, friend. There are endless design possibilities. What would you create?
