While I was surfing the many blogs I enjoy reading, I stumbled upon a craft website (http://dollarstorecrafts.com/) that showed a tote made from place mates and tea towels. Well, I was hooked and had to go get one of these items to see if I could produce one too. The finished product is below and I must say, it's quite cute!!
There was a 2 place mat and 2 napkin set at Wal-Mart for $2.50. Then I purchased some ribbon for the handles and the tie. This was a very economical bag and so much fun.
