Here’s the thing: there shouldn’t be anything plain about your tote bag. No matter if you’ve sewn one yourself or bought one at the store, there are a ton of ways you can make it match your style.

1. Add Some Block Print Power

Design any fabric print with block printing, from florals to geometric shapes and anything in between. It’s an easy way to customize a bag so it’s 100 percent uniquely you.


2. Make a Monogram

Embellish your tote with Y-O-U … or whatever initials you have. You can keep it traditional or go all out with wild and crazy fonts — either way, there’ll be no mistaking which bag belongs to you.

3. Paint With Stencils
