Craft a cool chevron tote from our June/July '12 issue


What you’ll need:

Plain canvas tote (try Michael’s)

Chevron template (download it HERE)



Painter’s tape

Spray paint in your fave color

Rubber gloves

A recycled cereal box or other piece of cardboard


What you do:

1. Print out the chevron template and cut out the black zigzags.
2. With a ruler, arrange the pattern in a straight line at the top of your bag, and lightly trace the outline in pencil.
3. Move the pattern 1 ½ inches below the first line and trace another, repeating ‘til you reach the bottom.
4. Tape off the outlines neatly to leave white space in between each one. Press down firmly on the tape so no paint can seep underneath.
5. Flatten the cardboard cereal box and place it inside your tote so that no paint can transfer to the other side.
6. Lay the tote bag on a flat surface outside and spray paint the white spaces in even, light coats.
7. Let paint dry for at least one hour. Peel off the tape and voilà, mama’s got a brand new bag!
