We established last week that I have a bit of a tote bag problem. While I have tons of totes for specific tasks, I didn’t have one that was just for me. I remedied that by making a cute bag that lists some of the things that make me happiest in this world. I used my Cricut to cut beautiful blue foil iron-on to make my new favorite things tote bag. I’ll walk you through the process of personalizing your own design in Design Space so your tote bag reflects your favorite things!
Begin by typing your text into the Design Space text tool. To get the trendy this & this & this look, don’t put any spaces between the words and the ampersands. I selected System fonts, and chose Arial from my computer.
Next you will want to adjust the letter spacing and the line spacing. I thought my design looked best with 0.5 letter spacing and -6 line spacing. Make sure you mirror your design before cutting out the vinyl.
Weed out the excess vinyl, apply the vinyl to the bag, place a pressing cloth over the vinyl, and use an iron to adhere the vinyl to the tote bag. I absolutely love the look of this foil vinyl, and I can’t wait to use it for more projects.
Beer & baseball & bonfires & blogging… these are a few of my favorite things! What favorite things would you put on your tote bag? Let me know in the comments!
