DIY Totes and Pillows

Martha Stewart Living, July/August 2013

Supplies

Fabric markers
Canvas tote bags
Scissors
Self-adhesive Velcro
Pillow insert

Fabric markers let your kids transform inexpensive canvas bags into art, making for great birthday-party crafts (and goody bags). If a design turns out really well, turn one into a no-sew pillowcase: Snip off the handles, then apply strips of self-adhesive Velcro tape inside the bag’s opening. Stuff in a pillow and Velcro the bag closed.
