I just love polka dots and had to share with you this fun DIY tote bag tutorial.
- Really bright, neon fabric paint
- A pencil with eraser
- Plain canvas tote. You can buy plain canvas totes here for under $2 each
I put a piece of scrap paper in the bag to protect the other side I’m not painting. Then I grabbed some more scrap paper to test out how I much paint I need on the eraser to get a good polka dot. Turns out if I dip it into the paint, and then blot one time on the paper, it’s ready to go to make one polka dot. I repeat with each one.
I tried to make them random. Which was much harder than it seemed! My brain really really wanted to create a pattern and line them up, but I fought against it. I thought it would look more organic if it wasn’t perfect.
That’s it! It’s really a 10 minute project. Let dry and take it out to the park!
