T is for tote bags! That’s right…after SuzelleDIY shared her tips and tricks for making your own reusable disinfectant wipes, South Africa’s favourite DIY expert went on to demonstrate how to make three different tote bags. Yes, SuzelleDIY is back with another DIY web episode for her new ‘Suzellphabet’ series.
DIY tote bags
“In today’s video, I will show you that lettuce is not just for salads and that your plastic bags can be upcycled in an eco-friendly way,” Suzelle said along with the video. “Watch me get creative and make some cute vegetable print shopping bags, use an old t-shirt to make a funky tote bag, and re-use plastic shopping bags to make my favourite tote of them all! DIY, because anyone can go TOTE-ally nuts with tote bags!”
To make the vegetable print shopping bag, you will need: lettuce, a lemon, an apple, a bag and some fabric or acrylic paint.
To upcycle an old t-shirt to make a funky tote bag, you will need: a t-shirt, masking tape and Jik.
In order to re-use plastic shopping bags to make a tote bag, make sure you have some baking paper, an iron and ironing board.
‘SUZELLPHABET’, A FUN-FILLED, CREATIVE DIY EPISODE FOR EACH LETTER OF THE ALPHABET
Fans of Suzelle have a total of 26 episodes to look forward to. Some of Suzelle’s favourite episodes include I is for Iron Hacks (who knew you could make toasted cheese using a clothing iron?) “Oh gosh! You are in for some big surprises and creative projects of your heart’s desire,” Suzelle said when introducing the project for the first time. From making various times out of jeans to making your very own foot-operated hand sanitizer station by using everyday things, Suzelle is still going at it with her series. And luckily, it’s not over yet! There are still 6 episodes left – and we wonder what DIY project SuzelleDIY has in store next?
