Glucose Test Kit Bag Difficulty: Beginner – moderate skill level (basic sewing experience required) Let’s admit it. That glucose test kit bag that came free with your meter is pretty lame.

If I told you that a DIY reusable tote bag in two hours or less was possible, you’d say, “Mary, that’s a fairy tale!” To which, I would reply, “Au contraire mon frère! It is no child’s tale, it’s real!” This is a ridiculously easy project continuing with my challenge to use up your stash scraps and find creative ways to DIY with one yard or less. Reversible, practical, reusable, and downright adorable, you can’t have too many tote bags, can you?

During this blog, I will demonstrate how to make this cute casserole carrier just in time for the holidays.
Hi all! Happy weekend again! This week, I thought I’d share one of my favorite projects so far- a shearling tote! A few months ago, I was scrolling through pinterest, looking at cozy winter accessories, and I came across a gorgeous tote from Nordstrom, that was out of stock, and even if it hadn’t been, I’m sure it would have been out of my budget. Anyway, I was reminded of ultra fur chocolate, suede on one side, and shearling/fur on the opposite, and thought maybe I could semi-recreate my dream bag, so here we are.
Hello again! I’m back with a quick tutorial for a tote bag. I don’t think it’s possible to own too many totes. There are so many different uses- reusable grocery bag, diaper bag, library bag, you can even use them as reusable gift bags! Slip a brand new coloring book with crayons inside for a great gift for a kiddo, a bottle of wine or sparkling cider, or even a bouquet of flowers, and your gift will continue giving.
Hello again! I’m back with a new tutorial, but this time, it’s for you, not your home! I don’t know about you, but I love to have a sassy little clutch to take with me on a date. I have a baby, so I can count on one hand the amount of dates I’ve been on this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have one & go out and have fun!
This little bag has boxed corners for a sturdy bottom, is fully lined and has a zipper closure. The best part, though, is that it has a little plastic window to show off what’s inside. It’s perfect for storing various toy sets with lots of pieces that you want to keep together.
I absolutely adore linen bags with just a simple touch of color or print, but I admit that when I make something, I really have to force myself to go easy with the contrast. I like the understated look so much when I’m done. This bag is a nice, basic linen with a pretty print used just for the bottom, the interior pockets and the straps.
If you’re new to bag making, you might not be sure how to make one with a squared-off bottom. When I made my very first bags, they’d either be totally flat or I’d use separate panels for the sides and bottom. This way is easier and cleaner looking.
