MY DIY | Back-to-School Cotton Canvas Cactus Bag
Since we have been talking back to school this week, why not end it with a super cute DIY project! Since you never want to show up with the exact same stuff as everyone else *the horror!* today I am showing you how to customize a cotton canvas pencil case or backpack and make it your own. This project is super quick and simple, but the finished product is so adorable. I love how you can pick colors and patterns that really show off your personality and make it unique to you. I chose a pink and green color combo, to create a fun cactus and strawberry print for my project. Plus a few with gold triangle accents! Cotton canvas is the perfect material because it is easy to iron on the decals and it’s durable so it will last throughout the school year. Check out the video below to learn more about making your own, or get to supplies and step-by-step after the break. Have a great weekend!
What to do:
Step 1: Tape off the bottom portion of your bag
Step 2: Using the dye, spray the bottom of the bag pink or your desired color
Step 3: Peel off tape and let dry
Step 4: Use a cacti stencil, or create your own, and trace onto the back of the iron-on paper
Step 5: Cut out the cacti stencil
Step 6: Place cacti on bag with the adhesive facing down
Step 7: Iron on fabric according to the iron-on paper directions
Step 8: Peel off backing to reveal your cactus pattern
Step 9: Add Supplies!
