It’s me, Aimee. The girl with too many dogs. The girl who throws her dogs birthday parties and puts their names on everything. You know you all have “that” friend you call the crazy dog lady? If we were friends in real life, I’m willing to bet I’d be “that” friend. I’m okay with it, though.
In my defense, I only own 3 dogs. And technically, I only owned 2 before I fell into the foster failure trap last November. I have realized a couple of things as I have embarked upon this crazy dog lady season of my life and that is I can either live in denial, or I can own it. And by own it, I mean, flaunt it. Flaunt it with a Crazy Dog Lady Tote Bag for all the world to see.
Made with the flocked heat transfer, you can have a personalized tote bag of your own in a matter of minutes. Maybe you’re not a dog lover and instead you’re a Crazy Cat Lady- you’d be super cute with a tote bag!
I like to use my bag to contain all of their belongings when I’m dropping the dogs off for boarding, or heading to the park for a playdate. They all know me at the vet’s office by my tote bags.
Supplies you’ll need
- Canvas Tote Bag
- Flocked Heat Transfer Material
- 1/2 yd or so of fun fabric (optional)
To make a tote bag for yourself, simply chose a font, type out your saying, and enlarge it to the size you want for your tote bag.
- Mirror your wording by right clicking and selecting flip horizontally.
- To make transferring easier, also right click and select weld.
- Create a box around all 3 words, right click again, and select group.
Now you can move all 3 words around without having to line everything up the way you want. I tilted my wording a bit. You can totally print straight and manually tilt when you get ready to iron, but I wanted to visually make sure it was how I wanted.
- Place your heat transfer material into the Silhouette as instructed on the box (glossy side down, no mat, etc). Send your image to cut.
- Following the instructions that come with your heat transfer material, iron on your design.
Grab your tote and your dog for a fun filled day at the park.
You can find the blank canvas totes at most craft stores. I added the fabric tie on mine to match my Stella’s bandana. You can heat transfer those, too y’all!
