Make It: Vegetable Print Tote Bag

I’ll be the first to admit I have a lot of tote bags. In fact my drawers are filled with pretty much every colour, pattern and size imaginable. 

But given that I throw everything into these bags as I run out the door including my gym clothes, craft glues and other items that I don’t want anywhere near my food, I thought it was high time I reserved a bag just for my fresh fruit and vegetables.

Iron out your tote bag so that it’s crease-free.

Step 2

Download the printable vegetable sketches and print them onto iron-on transfer paper. Cut around each one with a pair of scissors (leave a border of around 0.2 inches / 5mm around each sketch).

Then turn each of your vegetables face-down on your tote bag before ironing them in place.

Note: Make sure your iron settings match the manufacturer’s instructions for your transfer paper before you start ironing.
