Be-Weave In Yourself Tote DIY

July 21, 2015

 

Happy Monday! Here's a little DIY love for ya. While thrifting the other day I found this beautiful pile of neutral grey rugs, with pops of neon in them. I immediately knew they would make beautiful bags so I snatched a few and took them home with me.

 

To turn these rugs into a beautiful tote:

 

1. simply fold the rug in half and using a thick embroidery thread to hand stitched the edges. There's something really cathartic to me about hand stitching.

 

2. When the sides were all sewn up, I turned it inside out and boxed the bottom of the tote, you can learn how to this here.

 

3. Next, the tote needs a handle. Because the bag was grey woven, with pops of color I chose leather straps to add a new texture and natural element. You can also use old straps from a beloved purse or shop around for new ones!
