My little boy is growing up (insert crying here). He’s such a little love and we have such a strong bond, it’s going to be hard to not have him with me all day long. He’s starting preschool in the fall and on his supply list he needs a tote bag not a backpack. So I thought creating a custom tote bag would get him super excited to start school (he’s already thrilled).
We went to Michael’s and grabbed a pack of tote bags and some iron-on vinyl.
I cut out Ollie’s name (be sure to do mirror image!), and a monster that I had Mr. Project quickly draw for me (see bottom of post for a free download of this cute monster). Then I placed them film side up on the bag to get the placement right:
And then ironed on (one item at a time). I also learned after the first one to read the instructions (ha!) and put a cloth between the iron-on and the iron. No irons or tote bags were damaged in the process, but I was a little nervous there for a minute.
After ironing, I pulled off the plastic liner and saw the final product!
There was even posing!!! this is unprecedented folks, maybe he could be a child model after all.
I have a few more Back to School crafts up my sleeve that I’ll be posting about in a few days. here’s a little sneak peek… I guess I’m pretty excited for school too!
