How To Make a Monogrammed Tool Bag

How To Make a Monogrammed Tool Bag

Hard, plastic tool boxes are hardly easy to carry around, let alone convenient to hang on a doorknob. Canvas bags have been my choice up to now, but they always lack enough pockets to keep tools orderly. This 20 pocket canvas Bingo bag has more outside and inside pockets than I have tools. Here's a quick and easy tutorial showing you how to convert the plain bag into a jazzed up, monogrammed DIY tool bag.  A great semi-handmade gift idea for a handy pal or a new homeowner, just add a few tools to get them started. Why not get an early start on shower gifts, housewarming gifts, birthday gifts, or just treat youself?

*You could easily make your own stencils with your favorite monogram font. 

       I purchased my 20 pocket bag right here, check out the other colors.

       Also check out these masonry bags for a heavier tool load.

To monogram your bag, you'll need:

  • monogram stencils
  • fabric paint
  • stenciling sponge
  • ruler
  • pencil
  • hairdryer
  • tiny paintbrush for touchups
  • glam pin (optional)
