  1. Line up the ink transfer sheet on your tote to estimate the amount to cut. I chose a smaller bag, so cut roughly 4 inches of green and 8 inches for the cherry. 
  2. Use the EasyPress to iron out the wrinkles in your tote. If you don’t own an EasyPress, you can use an iron. Follow the directions in the Cricut Heat Guide. Press for 15 seconds on each side. 
  3. Place the infusible ink transfer sheets with the colored side down onto the tote bag (about 1-inch apart). Tape the sheets down with the Cricut Heat Resistant Tape.
  4. Insert the EasyPress Mat inside the tote with cardstock on top of the mat to prevent bleed-through. Place butcher paper on top of your infusible ink transfer sheet. Cover with your EasyPress and press according to your Cricut Heat Guide.
  5. Carefully remove the butcher paper and infusible transfer ink sheet from the tote bag once it has cooled.  
  6. Using the infusible ink marker in black, draw teardrop-shaped watermelon seeds directly on top of the red transfer on your tote. photo collage of how to make a watermelon canvas bag with infusible ink sheets

  1. Hi
    I thought that you can’t use 100% cotton for the tote bag. I was told it must be mostly polyester. Does this really work on 100% cotton tote?
    Thank You,

    1. Yes, Vivian – it should be polyester for the most vibrant color. I’ve linked one that is now in stock on Amazon. Sorry for any confusion (you can also pick up the Cricut brand at most local craft stores).
