I checked out a few sewing books from the library over the summer, and this looked like a fun and easy project. It's a tote bag made out of - placemats! I found 3 place mats that I liked, sewed a strap, and voila! Then, I put it in my hall closet where it stayed, unused, for months. When my mom came to visit, I gave it to her as a tote bag I had made her when I started to sew 2 years ago was looking a little beat up. I think I'll move into make something with a flatter, reinforced bottom. But this is definitely a great, sturdy bag!
