Turn a towel into a tote
- Burlap Shopper - No one wants to be seen carrying a plastic bag; it’s bad for the environment and your wardrobe! Make your own tote and shoppers out of an old burlap coffee sack and some scrap fabric with a fun print. Nothing will say “going green” more than a do-it-yourself shopper.
- Boho Hobo Bag - In love with a skirt that’s seen better days? Give it a fresh start as a handbag! With just one A-line skirt and a few buttons, you can bring functionality to an old favorite while still maintaining the style that you just had to have in the first place.
- Towel-It Tote - If you have a towel that is just too cool to be confined to the beach or bathroom, turn it into terry-cloth carry-all! Don’t just bring it to the beach, use it all year long for so you can bring a bit of the sun and sand of summer where ever you go.
- Plastic Bag Fusion Clutch - Create an eye-catching clutch out of an everyday black plastic bag. It can go from running errands to a night on the town while safely storing the essentials — cell phone, wallet, lip gloss. Don’t leave home without it!
