MY DIY | Stripe Bike Tote


If you are not quite brave enough to ride a bike in your fashionable duds, you can sport a stylish look by adding a bicycle to your bag. I seem to constantly collect canvas totes, so I decided to give one a  Summer makeover, and now I am officially ready to carry my duds to the pool. Make your own with painters tape, fabric dye, an iron-on decal, and your Rowenta Eco Intelligence iron. Steps in the video below!

    It’s so cool! I have to do it !
    where did you buy the canvas tote? it seems to have a stronger canvas than normal totes, and that’s what I’d prefer.

  17. What a great idea!! I love it!

  18. Sidney Jones says:
