Trash To Treasure: Bag Makeover

This week's Trash to Treasure is nothing too original, but this kind of "upcylcing" really does prolong the life span of promotional items. A simple patch made from scraps and a bit of fusible web makes a cheesy freebie fourth grade acceptable. I did use this pattern for the monkey face.
Free Tote
Molly Monkey Tote Bag

This bag was made for Mulberry, one of My Many Colored Crayons you can read her story here.

The Molly Monkey tote is adorable! It was very thoughtful of you to add the patch to the tote. I'm sure Mulberry is thrilled with it.

This is awesome. I have a couple of those bags with ugly stuff on them, I'll have to give this a try! Thanks for linking up your fab idea.

That is adorable! What a great gift that would make. I've been seeing totes at the dollar store, but couldn't figure out what to do with them. Thanks!
