First off, I apologize if you read the title of this post and thought I was going to share instructions on how to make a tote that stores popsicles. That’s called a cooler. This tote will not keep your icy snacks chilled, but it is a good transporter of essentials for the pool.
To make your own you’ll need:
– cotton tote bag (I used Susan’s tutorial to get the dip dyed look)
– heat transfer material
– popsicle stencil (I used a Silhouette Cameo to cut out the exact design)
– x-acto knife
Step one: Trace your popsicle design onto the back of the heat transfer material (the non-shiny side) and carefully cut out with an x-acto knife making sure to peel away the negative space. Or let the Silhouette Cameo do the work for you (razor blade cutting is not my forte).
Step two: Position the design onto the tote bag face down.
Step three: Cover with thin cloth and iron firmly over the design for about one minute.
Step four: Let cool and slowly peel away the plastic backing to reveal your now transferred design.
Alright, now time to sit down and eat a real popsicle.
I was not paid for this post, I just genuinely like the Silhouette products.
