It you are looking for a subtle way to stand out when you leave the house, I have a great solution for you.  There is a simple craft you can make that will put a little bit of your individuality on display for people without being too far out there.  If this sounds like a stellar idea, keep on reading to find out how to customize your best knitting tote bag into a fashionable force of originality.

Take a look at your knitting tote and brainstorm the varied crafting techniques you can use to customize it.  Remember, you want something that is distinctly you.  You can:

  • Stitch.
  • Paint.
  • Highlight.
  • Stencil.
  • Sew.
  • Any combination of the above.

Keep in mind that, although there is no limit to how many techniques you can use, you want to avoid having too many opposing forces clash with one another and make your best knitting tote look clustered and messy.  Simplicity is – to an extent – a wonderful thing.

Once you have chosen your method, you must choose your madness.  What exactly is it that you want to put on this tote bag in order to show the world who you are?

  • Your first or last name, or a nickname.
  • A creative design that inspires you.
  • The flag of your native country.
  • A motto that you live by.

As you can see, there are many options.  You may have to do some soul searching to find out what defines you.  What I can tell you is that a friend of mine got excited about the upcoming Summer Olympics and went to work.  She took five metal craft rings and spray painted them blue, black, red, yellow, and green, respectively.  She then intertwined them and sewed them on to her tote bag using some thread.

That’s who she is, who are you?
