How to Make Monogram Stenciled Canvas Bag


Canvas tote bag  (I chose white, but you could use the natural as well)

Soft Fabric Paint (I used black, but again, you could use any color)

Large Paper Doily (I used the 12″ size)

Adhesive Spray

sponge brush for paint (not pictured)


  • Spray one side of doily with spray adhesive (trust me, you don’t want to skip this step) then place doily on one corner of bag
  • Use fabric paint to paint over holes in doily
  • Carefully remove doily before paint dries
  • Monogram

There are a few different way’s you can monogram your bag

  1. I used my Silhouette and Freezer paper to cut a “C” stencil,  ironed the freezer paper stencil onto the bag, and painted.
  2. you can draw/trace a letter on, and paint by hand, like Ashley did
  3. Don’t have a die cut machine? to nervous to paint by hand?…..instructions for making a stencil with freezer paper here.
