DIY: Tote Bag Gift Idea

I did this project with my niece who is twelve. The bag above I made by tracing a drawing on to the bag and my niece made the bag below free hand.

My niece made this bag by
 1) Cutting out an anchor pattern she drew on a piece of scrap paper. 
2) She then traced around the anchor with a Mark be Gone pen. (Which is a pen that when you wipe the ink  with water it disappears.) 
3) She then filled in her design with the fabric markers. 
4) Then she wiped the B Gone Pen away.
4)  She finished her piece by adding the waves at the top.

The way I traced my drawing on to my bag was:
1) I started with a very dark sketch. I took this sketch and placed it inside my bag placing it where I wanted  the design to be, I taped it into place. 
2) Then I taped it to my window during the day. Now I could see my design through the fabric.
3) I used the Pental Gel Roller For Fabric pen and drew on my design. ( I used this kind of pen because it has a thin precise line.)
4) After my drawing was complete I colored it in with the fabric pens.

 This a fun project because you can make it with any design you know the person receiving the gift will like.
