My Tote Stain Solution
I tried to wash this as soon as I returned home, but unfortunately the stain wouldn't budge! The photo above shows where the stain was on my tote. I apologise for the photo, this was taken as soon as I had washed the tote, before ironing it! I really loved this tote because it was a great size and was really useful to carry heavy items in when I do the grocery shopping.
At first I thought about adding some kind of pocket to the outside so that it covers the stain, but the pattern is so detailed I didn't think that would work. I then decided that if all the bag was pink, then maybe you wouldn't see the stain, so that is what I did. I dyed the whole of the bag 'Pink'. Below is the photo of the bag after I had dyed it pink and ironed it this time!
At first I wasn't very sure about this, but now I really love my bag. I think it adds a bit of colour, I am really pleased with the outcome. I now have a bag that is totally unique and I am so glad that I managed to save it from the trash!
