Teacher tote bag

Here is a quick and easy end of year teacher gift.

You will need

tote bag
fabric transfer paper
Scanned picture

My daughter graduated from pre-school a couple years ago and this is what I made and her two teachers LOVED them.  I scanned her class pictures and printed on fabric transfer paper.  She attended a Christian school so I used a scripture on the bottom of one side of the bag and another saying I came up with on the other.

Some tips for fabric transfer paper.
Do not use steam
Iron on a hard surface
Most importantly, print your image MIRRORED!

*I could not get this to work in word because I didn't like any of the wordart options.  After much research I found you can use microsoft paint.  Create your wording and then under rotate choose "flip vertical". You will want to do this with your scanned image as well.  Some printers have a mirror print option however I couldn't find it with my canon printer.

Everyone loves to be green so a tote bag is a great and easy gift.
