I bet a lot of you might recognize this as the TOMS bag. Only, this isn’t a shoe company, it’s my son’s book tote!
Although, I was definitely inspired by the TOMS bag.
I thought it would be a cute way to personalize a child’s tote or pencil case.
It was super simple to make. I found a font on my computer that was very similar to the TOMS lettering (Corbel) and sized it to fit the tote I was going to make. I used the freezer paper method (tracing the letters right off my computer screen) to print the letters and the blue bands.
I even added four grommets in the corners just like how the TOMS bags always come.
If you wanted to do something similar for your child (or for yourself) but maybe you think their name is too long or you just don’t want a name, you could always add any other word like “PENCILS” or “PENS” for a pencil case or the word “ARTS” would be cute on a tote.
Do you have any ideas for TOMS bags? I have a bunch that I don’t use as bags but I just know there’s something I could do with them.
