DIY How to Make a Tote Bag / Purse from a DishTowel

Ciao lovelies! Today's post is a DIY- how to make a tote bag/purse from a dish towel! 


This is a super easy transformation! All you need is:
-A dishtowel, preferably one made of a heavier material. This one is from Target, and it's a canvas-like material. 
-Sewing machine or needle and thread
-Ribbon
-OPTIONAL: hot glue

 HOW TO:
Start by folding the towel in half like in step 2. There should be a fold along the bottom. Sew up the two sides, leaving the top open to form the basic pouch shape.
Next, cut two ribbons to the sizes you want for handles/straps. Sew them onto the inside of the bag, making sure you don't accidentally sew the top of the bag shut.
Turn inside out. Make a bow out of ribbon and sew or glue it to the front. And you're done!

There you have it! An easy bag to make on a rainy spring day that's perfect to wear out on a sunny one!
