Decorate your own fabric tote bag

Trendy designs that are easy to apply

You can never have too many tote bags! Not only are they incredibly useful, they also fold up really small and will fit into any handbag. But they needn’t just be practical: why not design your own  tote bag by adding a unique pattern – and put those shop-bought bags to shame! All you’ll need is an edding textile marker and our easy-to-follow step-by-step instructions on how to make a stylish, customised bag. Even if you’re new to this, you’ll still end up with a fantastic result. When you’ve finished drawing, iron the bag (without steam) to fix the design and make it wash-resistant up to 60°C.
