What initially drew me to these is the black & white look- I love it! The ease of this tutorial can't be beat, I made both in less than 30 minutes. Patience is key because you want to make sure to cover all the spaces created by the doily. I used a small round sponge brush from the dollar store and it helped me get good coverage.
In my circle of friends we are all using reusable bags these days. I made these totes for two of my friends who are some of the busiest people I know. I figured they would appreciate something made for them that they could distinguish from all the other grocery/kid bags in the car.
Once the paint dried I bundled them up and tied them up with a big bow. As you can see I also included a key fob. As you know, I love making these. There is nothing I love more than making gifts for my family and friends!
