Flower Tote Bag

May 30, 2011

It’s official…I can’t think about much else other than this baby coming.  Hence the last week off from Circus Berry.  Now let’s be clear, it doesn’t mean I have stopped cleaning, baking, crafting, etc.  I think I may have even gone overboard with some of the cleaning as if I was trying to induce labor or something.  I just can’t think of what to do with what I have cleaned, baked, crafted…etc…and with my mother being here for the week to help out with ‘stuff’, my hours were filled with fun Grandma, Mommy, Moira things to do.

I finally decided to share my Flower Tote Bag I whipped up a couple of weeks ago, since I seem to get lots of compliments on it lately.

It was super easy and cost very little to do.

Besides the straw tote from Target’s dollar section I used (it cost me $2.50), I gathered some scrap fabrics, random beads, and my hot glue gun, of course.

A tutorial for the flowers can be found here, but any fabric flower should do.

I attached some beads to the center of the flowers, hot-glued, and ended up with a cuter-than-I-ever-realized straw tote for the summer.  Now, don’t you want one to coordinate with every outfit???

    Hello…..I have a huge favor to ask anyone out there. I purchased 6 of these bags 2 months ago and had designed and done them all up for my bridesmaids….now, I need a 7th one for an additional bridesmaid…I have been to four targets by me and can't find any! If someone has an extra one or can pick one up at a target I'll pay $10 for the thing…I just need that exact one. What do u say ladies can anyone help out this future bride????Thanks
