Tote Bag Makeover

At The Little Moments, Amy Jo was given a fun striped tote bag by a friend who didn’t want it anymore.  She loved the stripes, but wanted to update the look a bit and cover up a small spot of dirt.

Out came the ruffles!  Amy Jo spent one episode of Downton Abbey cutting an old cami tee into strips, turned those strips into ruffles, and then spent another episode of Downton Abbey gluing the ruffles onto the tote bag.  When she was finished, not only was Amy Jo Downton’s newest fan, she’d created a gorgeous floral embellishment for her striped tote.  I love it–and I want it!

Tote Bag Makeover

Here’s a super cute makeover from Amy Jo, who blogs at The Little Moments.  Amy Jo had one of those bags that gets handed out for free at business conferences.  You know the kind–they are practically indestructible, but unfortunately ugly.

Obviously, that tote bag wasn’t going to make it out the front door on Amy Jo’s shoulder any time soon.  That is, until the day her husband discarded a green shirt, and Amy Jo realized that shirt could be upcycled into rows and rows of ruffles….to cover up an ugly tote bag!  Now she has a completely darling tote that she can carry anywhere with pride.
