Trusty Irish Tote

This Trusty Irish Tote design by Suzie Shinseki for I Love to Create is perfect for jazzing up a boring white tote bag that you are too embarrassed to use. To get into the St. Patricks Day spirit, try this cool DIY craft. They say shamrocks are special, so the day you wear it out might just be your lucky day. Don't let the dye discourage you, because this craft is super easy and fun to make.
