Gracie is obsessed with Frozen. I mean, really, what little girl isn’t?! I thought for a while that it would be a phase that would quickly fade, but it’s still going strong as ever. She even requested a Frozen birthday. I’ve already thrown them a Frozen party, so I’m trying to change her mind. So far our ideas are Princess unicorn fairy party….yup, we’re still working on it!
But to go with her obsession of Frozen and her love of pink, I wanted to make her a tote bag that she can use whenever needed. She’s always wanting to carry things to church, the pool or when she goes for play dates. So what better way to let her help than with her very own bag.
Heres a few tips when using iron on vinyl:
If you’ve never used Iron on Vinyl before, you’re gonna be so surprised with how easy it is to customize anything and everything you want with it.
Before cutting it out, make sure to click the “mirror image” button so it cuts the right way. You want the vinyl shiny (overlay side) side down, that way it cuts the vinyl but not the protective covering.
Heat up your product with a quick once over of the iron, and then put the vinyl where you want it on your product (tote bag in this case)
On high heat, iron in place with a thin piece of material in between the iron and vinyl covering. Push with a little pressure too. That will help the vinyl to adhere in place better.
The sparkle kind is thicker and will need a little more time and a little more pressure.
Once the vinyl was in place, I used some scrap fabric in 4×1 inch strips and tied them to the top of the handles. Each handle has 8 strips to the top of it.
She is in love with it, and has been finding every excuse in the book to take her new Frozen bag with her whenever we leave the house.
