80's Retro Tote Bag with She-Ra & Thundercats Patches!

 80's Retro Tote Bag with She-Ra & Thundercats Patches!
I love the 80's!
Such nostalgia with the fun cartoons.  I love She-Ra, I love Thundercats!
I've shown them both to my kids too...still classics!
 My friend makes these amazing patches!
 Melarky Store on Etsy!
They even do custom designs, so if you need a patch made, they can do it!
They sent me this fabulous package of patches!
 I got this fun black tote from Oriental Trading.
 Just remove the paper backing on the back of the patches.
 Place them on the tote.
 Cover with a tea towel and iron gently.
 The glue adhesive works great, but I like to do a zig zag stitch as well.
 Next, get some fun fabric for lining your tote.
 I chose a black and white polka dot fabric.
Cut it just a half inch wider than the bag on either side, and about 4 inches taller.
 Sew the bottom and sides then insert it into the tote and fold the top edge down.
 The inside will show the vibrant fabric!
Fold the cuff over the top of the tote and sew it in place.
 Then sew on some handles.
I used an old Karate belt for the handles...in pink!
 It's perfect for toting around books, craft supplies and coloring gear!!!
 It's a great gift idea too!
I love the patches!  Check out Melarky for your own collection!
 I heart the 80's!
What was your favorite childhood cartoon???
