Wash and dry tote according to instructions. Iron if necessary.
On the front of the tote create a square with masking tape. About 8” x 10” or any size you like. Press down firmly on tape to make sure there isn’t a gap between the tape and fabric.
Mix 2:1 ratio of acrylic paint with the textile medium.
Paint the masked area. Let it dry overnight. Repeat this two more times.
Once completely dry you will have to condition the chalkboard.Take the white Jumbo Bistro Chalk marker and color the chalkboard completely. Let it dry.
Take a damp cloth and completely wipe off the white. Remove the masking tape. Note: Conditioning it will fill in the porous areas and prevent ghosting. It won’t be completely black after you do this.
Take the fluorescent pink and write at the top ”Shopping” and then write “list” in fluorescent purple.
Create little check boxes with the Bistro Chalk marker broad tip white.Then write the items next to it.
Note: Use a damp cloth to erase. Hand wash or use gentle cycle to wash tote. Condition it after washing to eliminate ghosting.
