Draw a Doggie Tote: Boston Terrier Tote Bag

It's easy to customize a plain canvas tote with your favorite drawings and Tulip Fabric Markers

Turn a plain canvas tote bag into a work of art featuring a cute little Boston Terrier and whimsical trompe l'oeil accents. You just need a six pack of Tulip Fabric Markers!

DIY Drawn Doggie Tote

 Start with a blank white canvas tote. You can find these at your local craft store, or online. Maybe you already have one on hand!

1. Practice your doggie drawing first.




To draw a Boston Terrier:
  • Mouth: Start with the bottom: draw a horizontal line and then a very loose "B" shape with the bumps of the B facing downward.
  • Face: Draw a smaller half circle coming out from the line of the B, leaving space on either side.
  • Eyes: Draw eyes coming off of the half circle. Color in the pupils using the black marker. 
  • Ears and Head: Draw two lines coming up from the edges of the B.
  • Curve edges down to make ears, then attach curves to form the top of the head.
  • Nose: Draw a half circle for the nose and color it black.
  • Mouth: Draw a line that splits down at the bottom of the B curve for the mouth. Add a red tongue.
  • Whiskers: Add three dots on each cheek for the whiskers.
  • Color it in: Color the top section of the head (including the ears) black.

How to Draw a Boston Terrier
Now that you have practiced drawing a Boston Terrier, it's time to draw it on your tote bag!

DIY Doggie Tote - Cute Boston Terrier!
 Don't forget to color it in!



DIY Doggie Tote

Don't forget to color it in! If desired, add trompe l'oeil (that means "trick of the eye") details. I added an outline around the doggie with dash marks to make it look like the doggie drawing was a patch that I sewed onto the bag.

I also added other details like a pocket that runs lengthwise across the bag (with a pair of glasses hanging out of it), a patch pocket with two pens inside it, and a name badge with airmail detail.

I added outlines and stitch-line dashes to just about everything to add an extra level of whimsical detail.

You can customize a tote bag any way you like using Tulip Fabric Markers. Just take a few minutes to practice your drawings on scratch paper before you commit them to fabric!
