Turn to page three hundred ninety-four.
(admit it, you read that in Snape's voice)
with and would make a great gift for anyone that loves Harry Potter!
You will need:
Canvas Tote Bag
Silhouette Cameo or a Hobby Knife
Webbing for Handles
I got this fabulous canvas tote bag from Oriental Trading.
They have all things party supplies, holiday fun, toys, art supplies and jewelry!
I get all my totes from them.
These ones are the BEST ones I've used. They are sturdy and a decent size.
I like the natural canvas too. I use these totes for everything.
They are sturdy enough not to line with fabric, but the fabric makes it so much fun!
If you are cutting by hand, then draw it out and cut with a hobby knife.
It cuts it beautifully and quickly.
This seals the edges of the letters for a super crisp stencil image.
I used gold silhouette paint, but any fabric paint will work great.
You will also want a stencil brush.
The stencil is firm and won't shift, so it's perfect to let littles dab paint.
Remove the little inside pieces too.
I love to line it because it adds some stiffness and strength...and looks so cute!
I used a gold houndstooth.
Cut 1/2 inch bigger on each side than the tote bag.
Sew down both sides, and the bottom edge...if it's not folded there.
Then insert into the tote bag, after cutting off the handles.
The lining will show bright inside the bag!
Fold down the top to make a cuff and fold it over the top edge of the tote bag.
I found some natural colored cotton webbing.
I love the wider, stronger and slightly longer handles.
Perfect for any one that loves reading and is a Potter fan.
I have tons of Harry Potter and other Geek craft ideas!
