I always have a reusable bag with me wherever I go. It's the easiest way to be eco-friendly and eliminates the number of plastic bags used when doing groceries.
It's a good size, quite roomy, and can easily be thrown in the wash.
However, it looks a little blah.
I found these canvas embellishments at the craft store for 50 cents a pack. It occured to me that I could dress up my tote bag with these.
I laid them out, choosing a right spot for each one.
I did the same on the other side.
I relied on fabric glue to attach them to the bag.
And because I wanted to tightly secure them, I sewed them on using embrodiery floss.
An embroidery hoop made the task easier.
The combination of red and blue thread added some color:
And that is how I turned this tote bag from blah to TADA!
