Art & Tote Bag

Happy August! I recently wanted to try my art and painting on t-shirts and tote bags. I had an idea for a tote bag featuring my mom's art. Yes, she is an artist and so good at it. I knew she would be so excited to see her art on something different like this and boy was she excited!!!!

How did I do this you asked? I used iron-on transfer paper I got from Michael's. I love this stuff and it is so easy to use on fabric. All you do is print your image on the paper and iron-on. That's it! Then, I added some flowers, jewels and some burgundy tulle.

Take a look.

I loved using this black puffy paint to write the words.

Hope you enjoyed seeing this fun idea and I can't wait to make more bags and t-shirts. Have a nice day!


  1. OH Kelly this is so creative and beautifully done! I know she had to love it! I would-I still think you need to be selling these pieces of art!

  2. Kelly, this is beautiful. Your mom's artwork is wonderful. So that's where you get your artistic talent. I'm sure she will love to use this bag. I agree with Cindy, you should be selling your artwork! You do such lovely work in all mediums.
