Project Day: Vintage Shopper








When I spotted these reusable shopping bags for $1 at KMart, I just couldn't resist. On their own, real nice, but I wanted to add a bit more fun!
  • Shopping bag from Kmart $1
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Fabric Yo Yo's [ I buy mine pre made from Ebay]
  • Jumbo dotty ribbon
Arrange your fabric yo yo's randomly on the front of the bag. I like them all mismatched and all over the place. Hot glue each one onto the bag. Cut some ribbon for a beautiful bow. Tie the ribbon on the base of the strap.
Wa La
I new look.
Have a great weekend......I bought a car, I will reveal it next week.
Hugs
Simone

  13. Such a sweet way to glam up a shopping bag. I love, love, love the vintage car you are going to buy -- the color is fantastic! My favorite color at the moment although I don't have a bit of it in my home. :/ Have a terrific Friday! Tammy

  16. I just did a project with yo-yo's (posted on my blog sometime last week). They are really fun and I'm glad they've come back into style!

    Although, ended up having to make 50+, which took a lot longer than I expected :)

  17. Cute bag but now even better. I have a stack of bags like that leftover from a project, what a good idea. I can never tie bows that nicely. Congrat's on your new car!

  24. What a great idea...looks very vintagy. Can't wait to see if you bought the vintage car! My hubby just purchased a very original and immaculate EH holden sedan. Quite rare to find one in pristine condition. The one in your picture looks in amazing condition as well.
