Make a fun piano lesson bag to keep all of your lesson books in one place and ready to go. Below is a Funny Music Tote Bag tutorial with step-by-step instructions.
My daughter is a complete music nut. She has been playing the piano for nine years and recently took up the cello as well. Here she is playing Tarantella by Albert Pieczonka, for an online piano recital.
I wish I could say she gets it from me, but even though I love music and have been involved my whole life, I have never understood as much as she does.
Since she loves music so much, and always seems to be hustling off to a lesson of some sort, today we are going to be making her tote bag to keep all of her lesson books in.

Supplies You'll Need to Create this Project:
This post contains affiliate links.
- Cricut Cutting Machine
- Life Without Music SVG
- Blue Glitter HTV
- Weeding Tool
- Canvas Tote
- Heat Press or Iron
Cut the File in Cricut Design Space:
Grab the Life Without Music cut file.
Upload the SVG file into your cutting software, I use Cricut Design Space.
Size the design to fit the size of your tote bag. My bag measures 14 x 14 inches, so I sized the design to be 11.5 inches long.
Make sure to mirror the design before cutting.
Place the heat transfer vinyl onto your cutting mat with the shiny side facing down and cut. Then remove the excess HTV by weeding the design.
Applying the Design to the Tote Bag:
Center the vinyl on the tote.
With a hot iron or heat press, give constant heat and pressure to the project for at least 30 seconds. This will activate the sticky on the back of the Heat Transfer Vinyl and make it stick to your project. Be careful, the plastic backing sheet does get hot.
Slowly peel back a section, if the vinyl sticks to the backing sheet and not the tote then it is not quite done.
Lay it back down and go back over for another 30 seconds. Continue checking until the vinyl easily peels away from the backing sheet.
This bag turned out great and I am so excited to give it to my daughter. I think she is going to love it.
