How to make a tinted tote

Fabric paint in white and color of your choice

Parchment paper

Painters tape



1. Cut desired shape out

of parchment paper; tape

in desired position on flattened tote bag.

2. Section off a portion of the cutout with painter’s tape and fill in with darkest color.

3. Add white fabric paint

to original color and remove tape from first painted area, and place a clean piece of tape about a ½ inch up.

4. Continue adding white with each new section and taping off a new area. No need to let it dry between applications because you’re creating a blended look anyway.
