How-To: Sharpie-Dyed Doily Tote Bag

Craft & Design

If my sharpie collection is any indication, markers are something that you never outgrow. (My teenage self would approve!) This Sharpie-dyed doily tote bag tutorial from Vicki at The Creative Goddess serves as a lovely reminder of just how versatile a tool your markers can be. Who’d have thought that permanent markers plus a little rubbing alcohol would make such a gorgeous and easy dye method? It’s like faux tie-dye, but with way more control over the resulting design!
