Creative Canvas Market Tote with Featured Maker @li.la.o

We are inspired by the world around us and love to showcase new and exciting artist, designers and crafters and our guest designer series is a great way to inspire our Crew as well as each one of you to try something different, show off a new style or help you think outside of your creative box, so from time to time we like to invite crafters to be our Guest Designer/Blogger for a month to challenge us to see things in a different way and so that we may learn more about our products through the eyes of a new designer. This month we have invited Loulei Lilao known as @li.la.o on Instagram. As crafts is all the rage these days and we love that so many of our basic products are perfect for simple and clever crafty projects.

We sent Loulei a Canvas Market Bag to upcycle.

 

 

From the Farmer’s Market to the mall, the canvas market bag has you covered. Made of high quality, 14 ounce 100% cotton canvas, this bag is a makers dream come true. Buy many and create one-of-a-kind canvas bags for your online shop, or buy one to create your own custom market bag through screen-printing, dyes, paints, etc.

  • Surface that is ready for screen printing, embroidery, dye, iron-on, paint, craft supplies and more
  • 100% heavy duty cotton canvas
  • Machine washable (washing instructions of decorations should be followed)
  • Manufactured in USA
  • Measures 14″ x 14″ x 4″ (large) and 8″ x 8″ x 4″ (small)

 

“Watch the video below to see how I created this art piece. It is a step by step tutorial with lots of tips and composition information.”

 

NOW do not miss out on following @li.la.o for more creative projects!

 

 

 



I live with my partner and my two children, in a small village the North of Sweden. I work as a Intensive Care Nurse (with Cardiology as speciality). My "style" is colourful and playful. I often use a lot of papers and embellishments. I try to have the photo in focus, and to reflect the feeling of the photo in the layout. I also makes cards and altered projects. If I would call my style something - well maybe Playful Punk Chic? (if i do a romantic layout, I can´t help giving it a playful twist...)
