Anchor Tote Bag DIY

Summer Craft Day
We made Anchor Tote Bags. We saw these cute Anchor Totes on Pinterest, and made them for my Daughter's Coaches and Friends on her Water Polo Team.
Supplies needed:
Freezer Paper (has wax on one side)
Fabric Paint (we used Martha Stewart's all purpose Paint, the Pearlized Paint in Aqua colors)
Canvas Tote Bags from Michael's (3 for $9.99...with a 40% off Coupon!)
Pencil with a New Eraser on top
Click HERE for the anchor pattern we used
First trace anchor or design on Freezer Paper. Then cut out shape so you have a stencil on the wax paper. Iron Freezer paper to tote, t-shirt or whatever you are painting. (The freezer paper will peel right off when finished)...and you will have a clean line
Now time to paint! Using the eraser of pencil, Paint with Dots of color for an Ombre Effect!!!!
Let the bag Dry over Night!
I love the way they came out!
