We love taking plain tote bags and giving them a creative update! This palm leaf tote bag is easy to make using our SVG cut file and your favorite iron-on. Since we love gold against navy, those are the colors we went with, but you could choose whatever colors you want.

Because of the intricate cuts, we recommend using a cutting machine. Or you can always cut this by hand using our PDF.

Iron-On Carry On

Our palm leaf tote bag is the perfect summer accessory — whether you are traveling or not! We are not sure what traveling will look like this summer, but you could use this tropical bag as a carry-on, for a day trip to the beach, or just as an everyday tote bag.

If you do happen to be traveling (or even just planning a trip for the following year), you can coordinate all of your travel accessories with our sleep mask iron-on, tropical leaf travel pouch and tropical luggage tags.

For this project we have included both SVG cut files and a PDF. Simply download the file and be sure to mirror when you cut. Then weed the excess material. Iron the pattern onto your carry-on bag following the directions listed on your iron-on material. We layered the gold over the charcoal grey for some subtle dimension.
