tulip® ombré candy corn tote bag

How sweet is this candy corn tote! It’s the perfect book bag to kick off the fall season._x000D_ _x000D_
Step 1

Wash the tote to remove any sizing in the fabric. Smooth out any wrinkles while damp.

TIP: 
Protect your working surface with a disposable table cloth (or trash bag).

Step 2

Line your plastic bin with paper towels. Now, set your damp tote in the plastic bin on top of the paper towels.

Step 3

Add warm water to the dye bottles and carefully shake until it’s completely dissolved.

Step 4

Pour some dye into a disposable plastic cup. Use a large paintbrush to apply the dye onto the damp tote. Allow the dye to blend together. Let the dye soak in and then carefully flip over and repeat applying to the other side. Let the bag set 6-8 hours or longer for most intense colors. Fully rinse dyed tote in warm water until all extra dye is removed and water runs clear.

Step 5

Wash and either air dry or machine dry. Iron to remove wrinkles.

Step 6

Draw mini candy corn onto your tote with fabric markers.
