DIY Moon Tote bag

by - May 21, 2021

 Hand-painted tote bags can be a little expensive sometimes, and if you're like me that enjoy DIYing and saving a few bucks along the way, then this project is perfect for you. I love this project because you get to customize your tote bag to your liking. Today, I picked a design that was a little time-consuming but worth it. I was inspired by our beautiful crescent moon, and to switch it up a bit, I decided to incorporate florals and leaves into the painting.


  • Canvas Tote Bag
  • Fabric Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Pencil


1.) Slip cardboard inside the tote bag. This will prevent the paint from soaking through the backside of the bag.

2.) Lightly sketch a crescent moon with a pencil.

3.) Draw a few circles in different sizes. 

4.) In each circle, lightly sketch a flower.

5.) Draw some leaves to fill in the empty spots.

6.) Feel free to draw as many flowers as you'd like.

7.) Once you are happy with the design, trace it using fabric paint.
