Earlier this summer I was on the Raising Homemakers Wednesday link-up and I found this super cute idea for making a plain ole’ tote bag look prettier. It was a post called “Dollar Store Chic” on Desiring Virtue. Head over there for specific directions.
I thought it was the perfect gift for my two nieces. Their birthday was in June. So I bought some tote bags. And last week we actually made the bags.
Engage seam ripper if necessary.
(We were working in the garage to allow ample play space for the six other kids that happened to be around.)
