Robot Party Cartridge Tote Bags

Cyndi of Lovely Lula Here.  I really love robots so this Hello Thursday cartridge called Robot Party got me really excited. I grabbed a stack of canvas tote bags, laid down blue painters tape and spray painted the totes with pink spray-paint, creating horizontal stripes on some and zebra type stripes on others.

I used my Cricut to cut the robots out of black paper and then used that to burn a screen for the YUDU. I used a 70 mesh screen to print Water Based Adhesive on to heavy canvas.  As soon as the water based adhesive was printed I laid YUDU Foil in different colors on top of each. I then rubbed it down, laid a soft cloth over top and ironed it for several minutes. It looked a little manufactured to me so I then used a sanding block to rough it up and make it a little edgier and a little less cutesie. I used extra foil on other pieces of canvas and cut them up to build some layering on the robots. I added clear, block and white Ranger Glossy Accents and once dry I topped each little metallic friend with Imaginisce Rhinestuds Glam Rocks. I then topped each canvas printed robot on to silver vinyl and finally I used hot pink thread to stitch the patches onto the tote bags. A labor of love and my friends who are getting these as gifts will be super excited. We have a bit of a robot fan club her in Phoenix.

    Very creative bags. I don’t have a yudo yet, but it’s on my wishlist.

    I like the robots in the tote bags, they would look nice if done on the Imagine and done on iron on transfer sheets.
