This fascinating tutorial shows you not only how to sew this adorable gardening tote bag (or craft tote – lots of uses for this design), but also how to use the sun to print a design on your fabric. In this case a leaf design, but you can use anything to cast a shadow and create your own personal design.
The secret to printing your own fabric with the aid of sunshine – Inkodye! Available at JoAnn Fabrics and Amazon. Check out this video to learn more about how you can dye fabric or even transfer cool photos to fabric using Inkodye.
Of course this product isn’t necessary to make this cool tote bag, it’s just an interesting add-on if you wanted to try your hand at creating your own organic fabric prints.
