Embroidered Line Art Tote Bag

by - April 02, 2021

 Canvas tote bags are easy to upcycle. Hand painting a design is a fun way of spicing up any plain fabric bag. I've already painted a bag before, so to switch it up a bit, I embroidered this one. Since I'm still new at embroidery, I picked a simple design to start off with. I found a minimal line art image of a woman on Pinterest. I loved the simplicity of it. I knew it was going to be easy for me to recreate. I honestly wasn't expecting the tote bag to turn out this cute. I love it and can't wait to share with you guys how easy it was to make.




MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • Tote bag
  • Fabric paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Embroidery thread & needle
  • Embroidery hoop
  • Masking tape

(Watch the full tutorial on Jumprope or continue below for the step-by-step tutorial.)


DIRECTIONS:

1.) Create a border using masking tape.

2.) Paint three organic shapes in different sizes.




3.) Choose an image and print it. Lightly trace your design onto the tote bag or draw one instead.




4.) Use the running stitch pattern to embroider your design.




5.) Remove the masking tape, and you are all done!
