From Drab to Fab
I have a great tote bag. It tirelessly hauls half-gallons of milk, bags of apples, and cans of soup from the grocery store to my apartment. It carries my water bottle, lunch, and “cute” shoes (that give me “not-so-cute” blisters if I walk to work in them) to the office. And it doesn’t even flinch when it sees the pile of books that it has to bring to my late-night study sessions.
But, alas, its boring appearance does not match up to the impressive feats it reliably performs: it’s a khaki-colored satchel of blah. So, when I flipped through Super Cool Iron-Ons by Sukie and Unlimited Editions: 20 Instant Iron-Ons by Mike Perry, I jumped at the chance to finally give my functional tote the pizazz it deserves. Each book offers a variety of fun, colorful designs and figures that you can apply to T-shirts, totes, pillowcases, tea towels, and whatever else you can think of. All you need is a hot iron and one minute to spare!
These two books of iron-ons showed me that you CAN teach an old tote new tricks! Do you have something new or old that you’d love to jazz up? Please share your ideas below for a chance to win these two cute instant iron-ons.
