Using a Cricut Tote Bag as Fabric
Ahhh Snap! Yup you read that right. This week’s Cricut Infusible Ink Tote Bag Hack is a Snap Bag!!! How awesome is this? Don’t feel stuck to only use a tote bag as a tote bag. Take that tote bag and turn it into a fabric project. Can you imagine the possibilities?!? Secretly I’m hoping Cricut will release some sort of fabric for us to use.
In the meantime have fun with projects like this! I was inspired by Lorrie Nunemaker’s : Let’s make SNAP Bags! I simply love how cute and fast her method of making these are.
What cute, practical, awesome projects these even would be to donate for the homeless or women’s shelters, etc. I’ve been supporting Lorrie’s channel for quite a while now and absolutely adore her blog and YouTube channel. I highly advise you to take a look-see! 😉
So many ways, let’s me count the ways
No, let’s not count the ways Ha! But happy to mention the versatility of this type of project, especially when you use a Cricut tote bag as fabric to kick it up a notch! Still, there are so many fabrics to choose from so as usual I made more than I even needed. There are also different methods to make them. Our family has been making them a different way for years (fully lined with no exposed seams anywhere)
How to use a Cricut Tote Bag as Fabric for a Snap Bag
The awesome part of this is it’s super easy to put a Cricut Ink Transfer Sheet onto a piece of the Cricut Tote Bag fabric you will cut out. Simply cut the size piece you want to use for your project and use a Cricut Ink Transfer sheet along with your Cricut Easy Press and fuse the ink into the fabric. Walla! Now you have put a design on your own fabric! How cool is that!?!
Let’s gather supplies
- Cricut Tote Bag
- Cricut Infusible Ink
- Tape Measure
- Electrical Tape or Duct Tape (If using light color fabric be sure to use something like a white color or light color of tape so it does not show through your fabric) 😊
- Sewing Scissors or Rotary Cutter

So Helpful and currently my most popular video!
I hope you enjoyed this project!
Once you start making these, it’s difficult to stop. You can cut them out with scissors if you do not have a Cricut Maker. You can cut them out in any size you want and the options from there are pretty much endless, have fun!
