Feeling Crafty l Tote for Sarah

Yes, this was made for Christmas....but in reality it can be made for anyone anytime. Girls can always use new totes. I'm not bragging about what I made (believe me), just sharing a simple gift idea that really requires little to no thought. I'm always a fan of that.

canvas tote-$12 for 3 (Michaels, Hobby-Lobby, Walmart)
puff paint/fabric paint-$2 (same as above)
paper doily-$2 for 10 (same as above)
goodies for the girl (be creative)
some hot cocoa for sipping while your being crafty

This was made for my soon to be sister in law, Sarah. I think she really liked it, at least I hope she did. She made me this beautiful purse and I'm looking forward to bringing it out in the Spring! She makes such beautiful things. If you're feeling crafty too, check out her blog.

  1. Such a cute idea! Loving what you made for each other :) So cute!

  2. Oh I absolutely love my new tote. It personalized to me and no one else in the world has one! And I'm going to have jar of Gobstoppers in my studio at home and in my office at work. :)

    P.S. I love the photos you took of it under the tree. So cozy!
