7/31 | DIY Bags, Totes, and Purses

Who doesn’t love a good tote bag? I have been known to do a lot of bag making and I have a closet full of DIY bags, totes. I just can never pass up a DIY purse. I don’t think it is a bad thing cause I actually use them and you never do know what size you will need. Better to be over prepared than under prepared. Last week I sewed up a sling bag and shared the tutorial.  Today we are sharing a few more ideas that will probably have you running to the craft store. I love them all but I don’t think any of them could beat the monogram tote bag that we made years ago. It has gotten a beating but I still love to carry it.
