There is something magical about donuts that makes everyone happy. My favorite are classic frosted donuts, but my kids love chocolate with a healthy dose of sprinkles. We don’t get them very often, so whenever we do, they’re a huge hit. So, why not add a donut to a canvas bag to make every day a donut day. This donut craft tote would be a perfect summer bag for everyday adventures!
- Blank Canvas Bag
- Fabric – a brown color for the donut, a contrast color for the frosting, some various colors for the frosting.
- Fabric Glue
First, find a large mixing bowl and place on your bag to see if it’s a good size for the actual donut. If it seems like a good fit, trace a circle with it on your donut fabric. Then find a smaller bowl to trace the inside of the donut.
Place the donut onto the intended frosting fabric and cut out the shape. Then, cut waves around the outside of the frosting.
Then place the frosting part of the donut on top of the donut. The waves should be cut enough so you can see the bottom donut. Then glue it to the top of the donut. If are sewing, sew the outer edge of the frosting and the inner circle.
Now take the various colored fabric for the sprinkles and cut them into little rectangles. Once you cut out a few of each color, lay them out where you want them then glue them with the fabric glue.
Finally glue the whole donut craft to the bag. Again if you are sewing it on the bag, this would be the time to sew the outer part of the donut and the inner part to the bag. And then you’re done!!
