I am not sure where I found this picture, but I think it was in Country Living magazine. It has been in my to-do list for some time now. It will be a great way to use all the scraps of fabric that I have stored all over the house. It will make a great summer bag.
I made this bag in 2008. It was one of my first blog posts. It is made out of a pillow sham. I just folded the sham in half and sewed up the sides. The straps were made from leftover curtain fabric. My daughter uses this everyday to carry her books and teaching supplies to school. I think I have a few shams in my craft closet. Maybe that would be a nice project for later today. If you look in the clearance section at Marshalls and TJ Maxx you can find shams for under $10.00. I think this one was $7.00.
Thanks for visiting!
