I am so excited to share this quick and easy little project with you.
And I am linking this tutorial to my friend, Beth’s, linky party…
I got my new Fabric Interfacing for my Silhouette machine in the mail a few weeks ago, and I have been anxious to try it.
I wanted to try something really simple at first, so I decided to make Eli a little tote bag that he could use at the beach or swimming pool.
I found a picture of a whale at the online Silhouette store, and purchased it for 99 cents.
Then I ironed the sewable fabric interfacing to my navy blue material I got at Walmart.
(I got 1/4 yard of a navy blue canvas type material for about $1.50.)
After the fabric cooled, I pulled off the paper part of the interfacing.
Then I put the fabric on my cutting mat and loaded it into my Silhouette.
The Silhouette did its’ job, and Voila!
I had a little whale! ;)
I bought this white tote bag at Walmart too. They come in a package of three tote bags for $5.96.
(That’s only $2.00 per tote!)
I was wanting to add Eli’s name at the bottom of the bag, but didn’t want to use the same navy material. So I looked around the house for some material I could use, and guess what I found…
Yep! I cut the back out of one of his shirts he doesn’t wear anymore!
I used the same steps above to make his name.
And then I sewed on a little white button for the whale’s eye.
Eli is super, super excited about his new bag!
And I am excited that it cost me less than $4.00!
Now he has three jealous older brothers that I will be making bags for.
He will love carrying this little bag to the pool full of his toys and towel.
