Easy Bag Update {DIY}

I recently purchased this blank tote bag from Joss + Main, and decided I wanted to add a monogram. There are numerous ways to add a monogram, but I decided to go with the easy method: iron on transfer cut with the Silhouette machine. 

The trickiest part is choosing the right font/design and remembering to flip the letters before cutting. 

Once the design is cut, it is necessary to peel the excess transfer material from the backing. It's oddly satisfying...like peeling dead skin after a sunburn {yuck. did I just admit that?}

After carefully placing the transfer onto the bag, I just followed the directions: medium iron, with a press towel: 

It is possible to see the design through the towel:

And here are the two bags I dressed up with monograms today: 

bag: last year from Target, font: champagne and limousines + kg flavor and frames

bag: Joss + Main, font: Adobe Ming Std L + bergamot ornaments

Just what I like: a quick and easy project!
