Block Printed Tote Bag for Making Magazine

We have another feature in this month’s Making Magazine! You can find it on pages 9 – 11 of the July 2015 issue.

We used MasterCut to carve two blocks and printed them with Versacraft Ink Pads onto fabric. The fabric was then made into a beautiful tote bag by Emma Herian!

You can find out how to make this gorgeous bag from beginning to end in the magazine but here’s a sneak peek into our printing process:
