Gilmore Girls Yellow Daisies Tote Bag

Friends, y’all know that I’m completely obsessed with all things Gilmore Girls right now, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that it motivated my latest project! I’ve had a blank canvas tote bag sitting around for a while, and I finally decided to give it some personality, Lorelai style…take a look!


Canvas Tote Bag
Fabric Creations Soft Fabric Ink: Marigold
Fabric Creations Block Printing Stamp: Vintage Daisy
Fabric Creations Foam Printing Mat
Sponge Brush
Brush Tip Black Permanent Marker {or a regular black permanent marker will do}


Step 1: Use your marker to letter your favorite Gilmore Girls quote in the center of the bag.
I chose a shortened version of this quote…one of my all time favorites said by Lorelai.


For tips on how to do this using hand lettering, check out my Basic Hand Lettering tutorial, which will walk you through the process step by step. If you’re not all about doing it by hand, you can use alphabet stencils instead to spell out your message.

Step 2: Place your foam printing mat inside the bag. Apply paint to the stamp with a sponge brush.
Naturally, my stamp of choice is a yellow daisy as a nod to that amazing proposal scene in Season 1. Poor Max…he was such a nice guy and easy on the eyes too; his only problem was that he’s not Luke!


Step 3: Turn the stamp face down and press firmly onto the fabric.
Make sure you only work in the area where the mat is, then move it to a new spot and continue from there.


Once your paint is dry, your new tote bag is ready to use!


What do you think?! I’m loving the way it turned out! What quote would you put on your bag?
