Butterfly Tote Bag
Iron on fabric butterflies to create a unique tote bag for books or groceries.
Make a clever Butterfly tote bag for gifts or fundraising while reducing the use of paper or plastic bags.
Students will enjoy crafting their own tote bag for books, groceries, gifts or fundraising. Reusing a fabric tote bag is an easy way to become eco-friendly and more aware of effects on our environment.
