make it & fake it, Paint a Bag

Canvas tote bags are so cute and versatile. Why pollute the world with plastic bags, when you can grab one of the below and carry your groceries in style!? 
I am thinking waterproof Sharpies and a plain canvas tote, let the drawing begin. 
(What do you think about a orange Birkin? For now, that is my top pic as a motive)







Start the drawing girls, and let us know how it goes!
