Make today a good day

Our daisy tote bag features a positive affirmation using retro lettering that we cut out of heat transfer vinyl and ironed onto a denim tote bag. The flowers are cut out of felt and also ironed on using fusible web. We love how the white vinyl lettering pops against the dark blue denim tote, but you could always use a darker or bolder vinyl against a lighter tote.

Skill level: Intermediate due to the addition of the felt pieces and using fusible webbing

Crafting tip: Check out the second design in the PDF template and SVG that was not photographed! Also included in the PDF template is a printable that you could frame and use as decor.
