I found this tote at Through the Country Door online. They have some really cute home decor and home living items!! I got this tote on sale for $10! The paint and brushes, which I already had, came from Michael's and I used my Silhouette Cameo to create a template for the design.
First, I created the flamingo template using my Silhouette Cameo and cut it out of cardstock.
Finally, I hand-painted the flamingo using black craft paint. I used a fine-tip brush around the edges and then filled in with a sponge brush and a coarse medium-sized brush to make sure I got the paint into all the nooks and crannies of the woven material.
For a bit of fun I decided to add a big black and white polka-dot bow too.
What mom wouldn't love to get a great bag like this for Mother's Day? You could add any design, even a monogram.
