OK, so here is a quick tutorial on how I made this little catch-all bag from canvas and vinyl placemats! I followed a tutorial on Spool & Spoon blog but changed a few things. This lovely little number was made for a very special cousin, love ya girl....and next time you come for a visit I'd better see you using it!!! ;-) Kidding, kind of.
Pretty simple! I have been busy at work with some Christmas gifts as well that I can't post about yet because we still have about 14 more Christmas celebrations left... ;-) But here are some teasers: artful scissors, katniss Everdeen, and beer consumption. Muhahaha!!
A LONG over due post...it's the yoga mat bag!! This idea sprang up when I had a secret Santa with my workout buddies at the YMCA and what a better diy gift for a gym friend than a mat bag! I scored some cute fabric (at Joann Fabrics) and followed this tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=244983.0
The tutorial is pretty easy to follow and I pretty much stuck to the directions. Here is my final product! You are even getting a little sneak peak into my craft room renovation!! :)
I am now on my third bag..because what better advertising than toting my own cute bag around at the Y 5 DAYS A WEEK ;-) Yes, now you know where my free time goes when I am not in my craft room...sweating (or in my case not sweating) with my girls!! Amazingly enough, I am not sick of making the bags yet...so get your orders in soon if ya want one, because I'm sure it won't be long until I'm over it and will be moving on to the next creative endeavor ;-) Haha
