Easy and Cute Summer Bags

A trip to Target seems to be on most of our weekly or every other week To Do Lists these days. It sure is true for me. The first thing I do when I arrive at Target (unless they have a Starbucks on site) is hit the Dollar section. Sometimes I walk away with things I just couldn't live with out and others not so much. My most recent trip was defiantly a score big time! I found these plain and ordinary straw bags that were just screaming to be rescued and made cute. What kind of person would I be to just ignore their pleas?
I snatched up four bags for my girls and am in process today of turning boring into beautiful!
There are so many directions to go in, from flowers to stenciling an initial to just simply adding ribbon. My first bag is on the simple but stinking cute side of all the possibilities.
All I did was have child #1 chose her ribbons. I turned over the ends 2 times and sewed them down so they dint fray. Then I pinned my ribbons to the bag and with a zig zag stitch, sewed them onto the bag. It was that quick and easy for a really fun result!
So hurry over to Target before I go back for more! ;)

Pin It Now!
