Upcycled Hobo Bag
I really had fun making this bag. It looks faded on the botton but it really isn't, it is just the sunlight. Anyway a friend gave me some placemats and napkins she didn't want and off course I don't pass on any fabric. I always find a use. So I upcycled these items into a bag. I love it and think I will keep it instead of selling it. It will be great for shopping trips (yarn of course) or a project or two.
I just connected 4 placemats for the body and three napkis for the shoulder strap. I had some yellow and blue calico for the inside. One evenign and it was done. I will probably put either a snap or button for the closure. Not sure yet. Here' what you could do with all those linens you really don't use but don't want to part with.
