Personalize A Tote!

canvas tote with frog

This week I picked up a bunch of canvas and denim tote bags at a great price, and they are ready to be embellished. These are perfect teacher's gifts: Useful, reusable, and a backdrop for personalization.



Canvas Tote with Frog

The denim bag measures 16" wide x 14" tall x 3" deep. The canvas tote is a natural color measuring 13.5" wide x 13.5" tall x 4" deep.

For a recycling theme, one can go with some great little graphics.

Or, get a little kitchy with these retro birds and critters. You'll find more like these in my Embroidery Design Files Flickr set.

You can keep it simple with some names and monograms. See my Embroidery Font Flickr set to check out a number of fonts I have available.

Frenchie Totebag

If you're a South Carolina girl, you'll love the Polkametto Tree! Be sure to check out all my South Carolina designs in my SC Flickr set.

You can further embellish the tote yourself with ribbon trim around the edges, add a button and loop for closure, and maybe some yo-yo's or fabric flowers.

I'm not sure how I'll list these in my calicodaisy etsy shop. I haven't had luck taking good photos lately, as I'm still working on the backdrop issue. The price will run in the $15.00 range depending on the requested embroidery work. If you'd like to order a personalized bag, though, just get in touch with me here or through the shop and let me know what you'd like on your bag, and we'll design something together.
