"I love this technique! The finished product looks so polished, but really, the whole thing is terribly easy. I want to try it next on a t-shirt!"

Materials List

  • A canvas or cotton tote bag
  • Large letter stickers
  • Embroidery thread
  • A needle with a large eye


  1. Use your stickers to spell out a message on your tote bag.

  2. Once you're satisfied with the arrangement of the stickers (it took me a couple of tries to get the text aligned the way I wanted it), thread your needle with the embroidery thread and start stitching around the stickers, using them as guides for your letters!

  3. I took the stickers off as I went to admire my handiwork, and was finished in no time.
