So here's how to make a super simple tote that will take less than 5 minutes to make. I've seen bags like this done with embroidery floss and those are super cute! But takes more time than i have…sooooo enter our super fast version:
3 pack on Amazon if you have multiple teachers you want to make bags for.
-FABRIC PENS from joann's are like $6 or on Amazon (wow, those are priced more than joann's! Go to Joann's people)
-Ruler, washable pen or pencil
Next I marked with the blue pen every 2" and then proceeded to draw line the dashed line with my ruler as my guide.
*note: the fabric pen will run if you wet the fabric right after you draw on the canvas. Let the marker air dry and let it set before you try to remove the erasable marker. And when you do just lightly dab.
-Lastly draw on top of your temporary written name.
Have a little bit of time? You can make a fun little extra by using my Color block zipper pouch pattern and embellishing it a little!
-Make the zipper pouch just like the instructions in the pattern, I used Moda's ruler fabric. (I believe the fabric is called potluck by Sandy Klop. :)
-Measure 2" from the left side, and draw a dashed line in red, then measure down every 1" and make a marking with the blue marker. This will be your guide for the blue dashed lines.
-Mark just like you did on the canvas bag the name of the teacher.
-Drawn on top of temporary marked name.
