When I saw decorated tool totes from Harbor Freight Tools on the Gelli Plate blog, I know I had to make one (or a dozen. LOL)
My first one (not pictured) followed their directions more closely, I matted my prints in black felt and sewed down the layers. Then I used hot glue to attach them as I didn't think redline tape was a good long-term fabric-to-fabric solution.
I liked it, enough, but I did not like the behavior of the felt over the week it kicked around my studio. It kind of frayed and shed... not in a good way.
So I made another one hot gluing the gel-printed fabric directly to the canvas bag.
The fabric molded around the curves of the canvas much easier than the stiffer felt.
I added a little bit of waterproof pen outlining and hand writing and some white paint in the darker spots.
So cute! And these bags are intended to carry power tools so they're really sturdy. Perfect for carrying or storing projects.
Thanks for visiting :)
