I love reusable bags. I take them to the grocery, the library, even Goodwill (but not the same ones I use at the grocery, ew). Most of mine are freebies, and while they work just fine, they aren't exactly fun to look at. My solution? Put a dog on it. Or a cat. Or a bird, if you must.
Since all of my regular reusable bags have some big, unfortunate, hard to cover logo gracing them, I got a fresh one to use. The extra outside pockets are what sold me. In addition to a bag, you will also need:
• fabric paint or a fabric marker (I used both because I couldn't find a metallic gold fabric marker)
• animal template (and a printer to print the template if you aren't drawing it freehand)
• paint brush (if using fabric paint)
This is a thick canvas bag, if using a thinner one, place a piece of cardboard inside the bag to prevent bleed through.
