DIY: Dust bag turned market tote

by - Friday, September 14, 2012

How many of you have dust bags laying around from shoes or purses you've purchased over the years? Well, I have a few and they really are just 'laying' around. I wanted to put it to use before I decided to clean house and throw it away. Here is a simple DIY to embellish that bag. I used simple supplies that I had around the house.

Now onto the steps:

I used clear scotch tape to tape off areas. When you get to the last step, rinse and repeat! I let it dry for a good hour before flipping it over and recreating the front side. I'm excited to bring this with me to the farmer's market on Saturday morning!

Happy Friday!

peace, love & coffee,
