It’s summertime and no one, I mean NO ONE is forgetting about tote bags. This DIY will have you ready for the season with this easy tutorial on how to make a canvas bag! Check out our mermaid tail SVG file too - because it's always time for some extra sparkles in your life (and we all know that).

If you're a fan of mermaids, then this Cricut canvas bag might be the perfect option for your next project. This is one cute design that will have people lining up to get their hands on it!

You will be working with heat transfer vinyl and your Cricut Explore Air 2 or Cricut Maker. You will need an 11 x 13-inch natural colored canvas tote bag.

If you prefer to use another color, you can certainly do that but you may need to alter the color of the heat transfer vinyl to get it to show up better. 

If you’re familiar with using heat transfer vinyl, this project will be easy. You basically need to download the SVG and then upload it to your machine.

Follow your machine’s directions for working with heat transfer vinyl. Then apply it to your bag and allow it to cure for 48 hours before you use or wash it.
