Upcycled Canvas Tote


I was at Michael's a few months ago strolling down the clearance isle (which I should never do!) and I found this cute iron on transfer.. I thought to myself, it's only $1.50, surely I could find something to do with it! So I bought it and stashed it away in my craft room. 

I have been working on a doodling tutorial for my blog and I needed a craft to demonstrate how cute it is to doodle on fabric. I dug this old canvas tote that I used to carry my college text books with out of the closet and then I remembered the transfer. PERFECT!!! 

I washed and dried the canvas tote. I then proceeded for almost 30 minutes to iron out the wrinkles. As you can see, I did not succeed! 

I gave up on trying to get the wrinkles out and ironed the transfer on.

Next I doodled several different borders around the image with a black paint pen. 
I love the way it turned out!
