Photo Transfer Tote Bag

Make your tote bag one of a kind by embellishing it with a picture of your liking.


  • Photo of a child, pet, or just about anything
  • Computer and ink-jet printer
  • Iron-on transfer paper
  • Scissors or craft knife
  • Canvas tote or zippered pouch


  1. Step 1

    Upload or scan the photo to a computer. Print the photo onto a sheet of iron-on transfer paper and cut out with a pair of scissors or craft knife. You may choose to cut out the entire photo or just the subject's silhouette for a different effect.

  2. Step 2

    Iron the image onto a canvas tote or zippered pouch according to the paper manufacturer's instructions.
