Because we were hosting out of towners, we cleaned. Please tell me I'm not the only one who gets their house in order only when you've got company coming to town? So far, we've managed to keep it clean and that means the Craft, er, Dining room too. So today's project is simple and caused little mess, and I think it turned out super cute!
I bought this simple straw bag from Target in the dollar section for $2.50. (not sure why they have things in that section that aren't a dollar, but it was a cute summer tote for a few bucks) The big-flower-on-the-purse thing was big last year and so I decided to make one for this bag.
I wanted a linen-y beachy look - but sadly, this didn't cut it...
And the handles were coming apart from the bag.
Not sure if the big flower on your bag thing is still popular, but I'm ok with that! ;)
