Since starting college, I've been using tote bags all the time. They are so much more practical and you can fit so much in them! I found a plain tote on eBay for 99p and decided to jazz it up a bit with some good ol' potato prints!
I'm pretty sure that almost everyone tried this when they were little. Using cookie cutters to print various shapes. I decided to create a snowflake and star using my stanley knife, cutting into the potato.
I chose yellow and blue but obviously you can choose any colour you like. I just used regular, cheap acrylic paints. I used thick brushes to apply the paint and then simply printed them in a pattern all over the tote.
Such a simple thing yet you can create endless designs from it. It was so quick and fun! I might even try making more with festive colours - you could use them as stockings or gift bags.
