DIY Aztec Print Tote

Earlier this week I worked on a quick and fun DIY project – a stenciled tote. I’ve been using the tote I made in the Lotta Jansdotter workshop, but it’s starting to wear out a bit, so I thought it was time to make myself a new one!

I decided to print a 4 color design, so I had to make 4 different stencils – one for each color. Along with your stencils and tote, you’ll need fabric paint and a stencil brush.

Even though it was a more complex design with multiple stencils, the process was simple – I just started with the first stencil, let it dry, moved to the next and so on…

And the finished product…photo13

I’m so excited to use it! I think it is going to be a fabulous spring tote!

Also exciting – this was the first project I did in my craft room in my apartment! I still have quite a bit to organize and I have some cabinets to hang, but its definitely functional!photo16Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Weekly Pinspiration

Another weekly does of some visual inspiration! I have been drawn to arrows, tribal motifs and graphic geometric shapes all week. I am thinking of some projects where I can incorporate similar imagery. Typography also caught my eye, especially the bold brushstrokes in the Camus quote.
