Stephanie from Henry Happened shows how she painted a purchased tote bag to create this monogrammed tote with a rubber coated bottom. The rubber coating strengthens the inexpensive tote so it can better stand up to wear and tear. And the contrast color looks cool, too. Though she shows this project using a purchased tote, the rubber coated bottom would be a neat detail to add to a handmade tote, too. Go to her blog for the tute.
