This week’s Make Something Mondays project is a DIY ombre tote bag. Everyone seems to be so excited about the ombre style that I wanted to see what the hype is about. The whole way through this DIY, I kept thinking it is only okay. When I finished it though, it looked beautiful! I’m a big fan. Maybe just because the tote bag is pink? I’m not sure. I hope you guys enjoy this one!
Things You Will Need:
Masking Tape (not pictured above)
*If you are interested in making your own tote bag there are a ton of patterns on Pinterest. I bought mine at Pat Catan’s but you could find one at any hobby shop.
*I highly recommend Martha Stewart muti-purpose paints. I’ve never had a bad experience with these and you can use them for almost anything.
Lay out your masking tape. Make sure it is pressed down tightly against the fabric.
Paint panels 1 and 3 to make the process move quickly. Let it dry for one hour before removing the tape.
*As you can see, I didn’t think this through and painted panels 1 and 4, so it took me an extra hour to do this. I’m trying to save you some time 😀
Remove the tape for panels 1 and 3 and lay out the tape for panels 2 and 4. Paint panels 2 and 4. Let dry for one hour.
Using your fabric glue, adhere to scarf to the sides of the tote bag. You could sew this if you wanted to but I am going to be lazy and use fabric glue. It works just as well.
There, you have yourself a cute ombre tote bag! I plan on using mine for a beach vacation that I am overly excited for!
