Personalized Tote Bag


Instead of carrying pictures in your wallet, why not put them on your tote bag? Choose an image of a pet, child, or just about anything for a personalized fashion accessory. 


  • Transfer paper
  • Digital image
  • Utility knife
  • Canvas tote bag
  • Iron


  1. Step 1

    To make this bag, we printed a black-and-white photograph on transfer paper (available at crafts stores) and cut out the photo with a utility knife. Then we transferred the image to a canvas tote bag with an iron, following the manufacturer's instructions.

    Such a great, easy craft! Can't wait to put my dog on my totebag :)

    Daryl: You can find this at Wal-Mart in the Fabrics/Sewing Section. Usually, it's about $1 per sheet. You can also find them on places like eBay. Hope this helps.
