Craft a Silly Tote Bag!

Last minute gift idea!  I made this grocery bag for a gift for my brother last year – quick, fun, and recycled! Yay!

How-to:  Find a tote bag to reuse (I thrifted this one at Value Village), and an old t-shirt with a fun/funny image.  Cut the tee image out a few inches smaller than the bag front.  Use an iron-on fabric adhesive interfacing thing (like steam-a-seam) to iron the tee piece onto the bag (using the instructions on the interfacing).  Then hand-sew around the edges.

You could stitch around with yarn or embroidery floss instead of thread, or you could add extra embellishments or personalized decoration…

Hope this helps some of you with last-minute gift crafting!

Oh yeah, by the way, the holiday card winners were Jen, Heather, and Miranda! Yay!
