Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Want to make an inexpensive tote to carry then why not pick up some placemats next time you go to the dollar store. With just a few cuts and some sewing you will end up with this supercute placemat tote bag. So easy and fast to make. Anyone can make one with this tutorial. Why not make some extras for family and friends too.

I can't thank you enough for sharing this great idea! I have lost count of how many of these I have made and people are always amazed that they are made from placemats! Kuddos!

This instruction is very well done and I will definitely use this. I have a lot of placemats that are quilted and many yards of the strapping too! I'll try to come back and post mine when I get them done!

Me encanta esta bolsa.
