DIY Team Spirit Blog

What does every single tailgate-er needs to have for a good tailgate?! Bags and totes to carry the essentials of course!! And, since I love football AND crafting I thought I would bring the two together and personalize a tailgating tote.

The best think about this tote is that it was simple to make and very inexpensive.

Here is what you will need: a canvas tote (I found mine at the dollar store awhile back), paint markers, vinyl wording (optional–if you have good handwriting you may not need this), and your favorite team spirit fabric.

I then traced the Michigan “M” of paper and then cut the letter out in fabric.

and then sewed the outline of the “M” onto the bag.

*I should mention at this point that I am not a huge fan of sewing, but I am just fine with imperfection and so I just did a sloppy-on-purpose kind of job.*

Next I placed my vinyl lettering on my bag.

and used it as a stencil to get my wording using a paint marker.

Nice and simple, while festive and functional. That is my kind of tailgating project!
