If you have to take your own re-usable bag to do your grocery shopping, make it a cute one! Create your own cute veggie market tote with this easy project.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
- Darice Canvas Market Bag
- Veggies PDF
- Pellon Wonder-Under Fusible Web 15 in. x 2 yd. White
- Cotton Fabric Scraps
- Fabric Scissors
- Iron & Ironing Board
- Tulip Fabric Marker Fine Tip Rainbow 12 pc.
To begin, print Veggies PDF pattern. Cut out all of the pattern pieces.
Figure out what color fabric you are going to use for each pattern piece. Cut squares of fabric from your color choices to fit your pattern pieces.
Cut pieces of Wonder-Under the exact size of your fabric squares. Using your iron, apply the Wonder-Under to backside of each fabric square, according to the directions on the package.
Use your pencil to trace the pattern pieces onto the paper backing that is now on the backside of each of your fabric squares.
Use your fabric scissors to cut out your traced pieces.
Decide on a layout for your veggies on your bag.
Use your black fabric marker to draw faces on each of your veggies. I suggest drawing the faces on before you attach the fabric pieces to the bag, just in case you make a mistake with your drawing and want to make a new piece.
Peel the paper backing off the back of each of your veggie pieces, they will look shiny. Pile each veggie’s pieces in the order that you will iron them onto the bag–For example: first apply the beet’s leaves, and then apply the body of the beet so it overlaps and hides the base of the leaves.
Use your iron to apply the pieces to your bag, according to the instructions on the Wonder-Under package.
