Harry Potter Tote bag Tutorial
Made this for my friend as a graduation gift, you could do this with anything you like on it, Harry potter, Doctor Who, Supernatural, Divergent, Marvel, Hunger Games, or even just your favorite quote! The possibilities are endless.
It takes a bit of time when you have to wait for paint to dry, but it's something you can come back to when you have more time.

  • How to make a tote bag. Fandom Tote Bag Tutorial - Step 1
    Step 1

    Start off with a plain tote bag- I got mine from walmart in the arts and crafts section for about $3- and wipe it clean with a dry towel or rag.

    I did a sketch of the Hogwarts castle on mine and inserted a cardboard box so paint wouldn't soak through. You can freehand something, or do a quick google search to find an outline of what you want. (If you do that, just cut it out with scissors or a craft knife and trace around it with a pencil.)

    With a small paint brush do a quick outline of your sketch- it doesn't have to be perfect, you can touch it up later!

    With a larger brush fill in your outline. Near the bottom I added a bit of water to my paint to give it a bit of a washed/grey feel.
    You can now go around your edges to fine tune any mistakes you might've made, if not you can move on.

    I decided to add a favorite quote of my friends- "It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live"
    Again, you can go online and find an outline of a banner and cut and trace it onto your bag. Once you fill it in, let the paint dry before writing on it with a pencil. Using a small brush (or fine tip sharpie) you can add your quote.

    Now you're finished. Just let it dry, then flaunt it around! It's great for carrying books, and extra jacket, your laptop, wallet, anything!
