I'm a guest contributor for the You Can Make This Blog today! Click on this link to learn how to make these cute and funky bags! These are perfect for carrying library or piano books, for sleepovers, and just hauling all the stuff a girl's gotta have.
I love this project because my gals and I were able to make them together, and there is not a stitch of sewing involved. My daughter was home sick from school for two days, so I pinned and cut, and she tied the knots while she was resting on the couch. We made three of them and she loved it!
And the other fun thing...they are each made out of 2 handkerchiefs that I bought from Wal-Mart for $1.00 each. At my local store, they have dozens of darling coordinating patterns to choose from, including the Halloween print you can see in the photos.
I have to send a shout out to my crafty, young friend, Hannah, who taught me how to make these in the first place. She's been making them for her teenage friends right and left, and having a great time doing it. Thanks, Hannah!
