DIY Paint Splattered Patriotic Tote Bag Tutorial

This patriotic tote bag is easy to make but it takes some time to be ready. The result is pretty good though! The funny thing is that I end up making an American patriotic project because I didn’t’ read the whole instructions LOL. I could have done something from Venezuela where I lived most of my life of Brazil where I actually was born Haha.
Aaaaniway I enjoy lots making this patriotic tote bag and I actually use it often hope you like it too.

So, Ready to check this Patriotic Tote Bag out???

What you need:

  • Fabric paint {I used red and blue}
  • White fabric {2 pieces 40 x 60 cm}
  • White fabric {1 piece 80 x 16 cm}
  • Patterned fabric {2 Pieces 40 x 60 cm}
  • Patterned fabric {1 piece 30 x 15 cm}
  • White felt {2 Pieces 40 x 60 cm}
  • Old toothbrush
  • Vinyl or freezer paper stars.
  • 1 white small button
  • 1 Big button {I used blue}
  •  About 10 cm of elastic cord.

DSC_5409 I made some starts on my Silhouette studio {app} and filled the whole area {did you know that now you set one image and it can fill horizontally and vertically? wow}. Then I cut it on my Cameo using freezer paper. I remove all the paper leaving only the stars and using one of the 40 x 60 white fabric I placed and ironed the stars on it.


Then I protected a table with paper and using a plastic surface I placed the star masked fabric there and secure it with small pieces of tape. I deluded the paint with some water, just a few drops to make it a bit thin. With the toothbrush I started splatting the paint on half of the fabric with blue and the other half with red.


 I left it dry for a couple of hours and then removed the stars carefully. Tadaaa! The paint is done!


Now to the tote bag.
