@ColortimeCrafts ~ Recycle Tote and Fabric Markers #Review and #Giveaway! ~ 1/10 - 2/10

ColorTime Crafts and Markers
Recycle Tote Bag


Product Description: Recycle Tote Bag. If you're looking for the "green" way to go shopping, do so by personalizing your own tote bag with permanent, non-toxic fabric markers available through their online catalog. Having your class, youth organization, or scout group color this 100% cotton muslin tote bag is a great way to encourage recycling and environmental awareness.

Not only the perfect Earth Day project, but the "Recycle" tote bag can also be used as a customized gift for the grandparents or a handy way to carry library books, gardening tools, or toys! Color this 15" X 16" (Full size) tote bag with Colortime's permanent fabric markers!
Price: $4.75

I love this tote bag! When my Recycle Tote Bag from ColorTime arrived I was genuinely happy with the size, quality and durability of the bag as well as the price. It is made of 100% cotton muslin and feels very sturdy and secure for holding multiple items with no fear of rips or tears. It's the perfect size carry tote for anyone.

I decided I wanted to color the "Recycle" Tote myself, and after reading through the included instructions and tips for using the markers I started to color. I received a Blue, Green and Yellow Fabric Marker in my package. The markers are large and easy to hold on to, but the felt tips although also large, do have a nice point for outlining the coloring area easily. I liked that they left a nice deep color on each stroke and I did not have to go over the lines numerous times as you do with some other fabric markers. The color was absorbed into the cotton muslin tote nicely and did not leave a feathering or spread effect. It left nice sharp lines. However, the liquid in the fabric markers, do take a little while to dry completely and if you color like I do, where you put your hand against the project as you color, the color will come off on your hands and smear onto your image, if you don't take caution. On the up side, the marker comes right off your hands with a little soap and water. (I didn't' even use soap,it wiped right off with a Kleenex). The markers did not seem to dry out the more I colored and left the same deep color the first stroke as with the last.

Not only are the ColorTime Crafts and Markers safe and non-toxic, the best part is you don't have to set the color in. The Fabric Markers were designed to be wearable as soon as the fabric feels dry. The colors are chlorine resistant and pool water will not affect the color. They have a long shelf life as long as they are left closed tightly while not in use. Normal washing with no added steps or precautions although ironing is not recommended without a towel cover. The black in the print design could smudge.

I am so impressed with the sturdiness of this bag for the price. I host many parties throughout the year for the kids in our family and our friends kids. We usually have a minimum of 15-20 kids and seems each year it grows more and more. I have purchased bags, totes, t shirts and other crafts for them to do over the years and usually in bulk, I have never received something of this quality at this price. I am already in the process of setting up an order for their Easter totes for the kids this year. They will make the perfect tote for the kids while they are out looking for their Easter eggs. But not only that, they will each have their own bag for all their treats and goodies and no worries of getting them mixed up!

These would make excellent scouting crafts, camp crafts or even like I plan to do, family crafts! You really can't go wrong, and they even offer custom printing! You can actually design your own image or they can custom design an image for you. They have made family and group crafts so simple and easy with all their choices and selections, as well as the prices.

ColorTime has extremely affordable and durable quality products!
