We have ANOTHER fab crafting tutorial from the amazing Bethany at Pitter and Glink. (Visit her!)
Bethany here from Pitter and Glink. I was to share a cute, inexpensive project with you.
All you need is a mini tote bag (or a large one) and some embellishments.
I chose ribbon, ric-rac (not pictured), and a shabby flower for my embellishments.
I bought four bags from the craft store for $2.99, but depending on the craft store, you could get an online coupon and they would be even cheaper! I started by cutting a piece of ribbon a little larger than my bag.
I then folded over the ends of the ribbon and hand stitched it. (This could be a completely no-sew project is you use fabric glue, though. I'm an impatient crafter and I didn't have any at the moment.)
Then I cut a piece of ric-rac to layer on top of the ribbon.
I also selected a pretty shabby flower in a coordinating color. I glued the ric-rac to the middle of the ribbon and folded the ends under the ribbon. Then I glued the ribbon to the bag. The finishing touch was gluing the flower to the ribbon.
This is such an easy, inexpensive project. I think these would be great as party favors, gift bags, or even bridesmaids' gifts. Or use the same steps for a large tote bag to create a purse. There are so many possibilities!
