Make Your Own Braille Bag!

The braille bag

Are you looking for a cute and personalized bag for your little one? Do you want to introduce your child (and their friends) to braille? Well, we’ve got a project that’s so easy you’ll wonder why you didn’t think of it yourself! Here’s the how-to…


What You’ll Need:

  • A blank tote
  • Puffy iron-on letters
  • Puffy paint


Making Your Braille Bag

  1. Following manufacturer’s directions, iron on the print alphabet letters on the bag. Make sure to leave enough space for the braille letters above.
  2. Next, use puffy paint to make braille dots above each print letter. If you’re unfamiliar with the braille alphabet, you can download our Braille Alphabet and Numbers Sheet.
  3. You can also presonalize your bag by adding your child’s name in print and braille on the other side.
  4. You’re done! Wasn’t that easy?

And One More Idea…

Once you’ve got the technique down, you can braille just about anything, from blankets to table cloths. Here’s a picture of a simple yet beautiful blanket that’s been brailled. The fabric was cut on the ends and tied to give it a knitted look. So what are you waiting for? Go braille something!
