We had so much fun with our ice cream potato stamped bag that we decided to make a fruit version. Read more below to see how fun it is for kids to make this cute summer inspired tote!

Potato Stamped Fruit Bag – Materials:

Blank canvas bag (any canvas tote will do)

– Potatoes

– Paint (we used a mix of fabric paint and acrylic) and paint brushes

– Knife


Step 1. Carve out fruit shapes from your potatoes. It’s helpful too look up fruit images on your computer to get a sense of shape and sketch them out on the potatoes first.

Step 2. Use your paint brush to coat a layer of paint to your potato stamp. Apply firmly where you want it placed on the bag and remove. Allow to dry completely. Use a small paintbrush to add details. You’re done!

Have you tried potato stamping before? You can do so many cute designs and it makes a cute art project for kids!
