30 Days of DIY: Day 29 ~ Satin Striped Canvas Bag

For $4, I have a cute new striped tote for spring!  I used a satin ribbon belt with a flower attached, and a tote from Joann's for $4, along with some Liquid Stitch, and I have an awesome tote!  I've been wanting to try out Liquid Stitch for a while now, and I'm really pleased with the results. 
My supplies.  I first detached the flower from the belt.
And laid out the ribbon.  One side of it was a matte finish and one side had a shiny finish.  I decided to do two stripes matte and one shiny.  I put the glue on the ribbon, and pressed it firmly down.  When I went all the way around, I snipped the excess and put extra Liquid Stitch on the end.
Almost halfway done!  
I really like the noticeable difference in the matte/shiny stripes.  I also glued the flower below one handle, I thought it made the perfect finishing touch.  This took about 10 minutes, plus the recommended 24 hours to dry thoroughly, and is so rad!  What do you think my ladies?



  1. oh, I love this! So chic. And totes are a necessity especially in the summer! well done!

  2. I love, love, LOVE it. I am definitely trying out Liquid Stitch now that you've mentioned it--I'd never heard of it before. How expensive is Liquid Stitch, may I ask? (I'm a college student on a budget).

  3. Thanks Maya, I couldn't agree more!! J ~ I think I paid $3 for the Liquid Stitch at Joann's. Totally affordable, you should try it. I was definitely impressed!
