I made the cutest scripture tote today out of a placemat. It was very simple. I started by sewing the ribbon on both sides. Then I sewed down the each side and make a box bottom. Glue on the flower and tada!! Works as a great scripture tote or even a purse.
I'm going to make a bunch more, they were so easy and cheap. I'd like to make one with furry yarn along the top opening.
