Summer is finally here! One thing that I want to do this summer is to keep my kids reading. So, the on last day of school, I picked them up and we headed straight to the library. They really love it there, so I think we’re off to a good start. We plan on signing up for the summer reading program as soon as it starts. After the first library trip, I knew that were definitely going to need a proper bag to tote all of these library books back and forth.
I used my Silhouette to put this together. Here’s what you need to make your own:
I got a large empty tote at Joann’s for $5 or so. I also used the black flocked heat transfer from Silhouette, some fabric scraps that I had on hand and the clean cut fabric interfacing.
I started by cutting the wording out of the heat transfer. The font I used was My Own Topher (you can download it for free here).
Next I ironed on the wording.
I liked it, but I knew it needed some more embellishing. So I grabbed some fabric scraps and cut some flowers out.
For the flowers, I used shape 3d_ruffle_flower_C02598_1. The leaves were taken from shape 3d_flower_C01680_20509.
The easiest way I found to get the flowers on was to use good old fashioned hot glue.
Now we’re all ready to spend lots of time at the library this summer!
