Constellation Tote

  • Tote Pin-it%402x

Details

This tote is perfect for weekend trips. Around town it just as easily holds library books, greenmarket veggies or a secret stash of fashion magazines. We love the idea of a dreamy, starry-eyed constellation but anything goes here. You could use the fabric marker to add stripes, spots, stars, hearts or your favorite saying.

Tools

  • hole punch
  • pen, pencil, or sharpie
  • optional: flat-nose pliers

Gather your materials. While you can use the studs and fabric marker included in the box to create whatever you’d like if you’re using the zodiac guides you’ll need to print out the guide you’d like to use.

Cut out the constellation and use a hole punch to punch the center of each star.

Place the guide on the tote and use a pen to mark where you’ll add the studs.

Place a stud over your pen mark.

To5%20small Pin-it%402x

Add the studs one at time by pushing the prongs through canvas.

To6%20small Pin-it%402x

Fold the prongs over with your fingernail or pliers to secure the prong to the tote.

To7%20small Pin-it%402x

Keep going. Repeat with the remainder of the studs.

To9%20small Pin-it%402x

Using the printed constellation as a guide draw in the lines with the fabric marker.

You may have to go back over your lines a few times to make them dark enough. It’s best to start out light and darken as you go.
