And last but not least, my contribution to this fabulous party – a DIY Market Tote! I broke out my Silhouette Cameo and got to play with Silhouette’s flocked heat transfer fabric (you know that soft fuzzy material). I want to iron flocked material onto everything now! My Silhouette made this project super easy – just cut and iron! I snagged the carrot seed graphic directly from the Silhouette library, isn’t it the cutest?! These carrot seed bags would be great party favors that can be reused by your guests.

Step 1: Find the “Carrot Seed Pack” graphic in the Silhouette library. Separate the layers and cut each layer out of the corresponding color. You’ll see that I changed the colors and omitted a few layers to make it easier to iron on a tote bag. Make sure to refer to the Heat Transfer Material box for setting instructions. I recommend doing a test cut first if you’ve never worked with heat transfer material before.

Step 2: Iron the layers, one at a time, to the tote bag. Follow the instructions on the Heat Transfer Material box, taking care not to place the iron directly on the fabric.

Step 3: Make enough tote bags for all of your party guests and enjoy!
