Freezer Paper Monogrammed Tote Bags

My twin nephews are turning 4 next week.

I decided I wanted to give them their presents in some sort of bag they could use again. I found these great little canvas tote bags at Joann’s for $.97 & couldn’t resist. They were designed to be made into purses by adding your own handles. I thought the purse handles were just a little too pursy so I sewed handles out on 1″ webbing.
Monogrammed Gift Bags
To make the monograms I printed their initials 3-inches tall on freezer paper. Then I cut the letters out with an exacto knife to create a stencil. The freezer paper irons onto the bag allowing me to easily paint on the initial with fabric paint. Once dry, the freezer paper peels right off. After 48 hours I set the fabric paint by ironing it.

The bags are filled with lots of little things boys love like crazy straws, punching balloons, toy cars & M&Ms; plus I think they’ll like having their own bag to tote their favorite things around in the future.
