TOTALLY recycled tote bag

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That it is totally recycled, and turned out awesome! Oh and that beautiful tree frog isn't sitting around on a piece of fabric gathering dust! ~sand maybe...but that's a good thing! :D What advice would you give someone starting this project? Not EVERYTHING has to be a designer label !!! I'm inspired by new and clever ways to reuse everyday objects. Don't let preconceived notions limit your creativity! ~my mom still saves the wax paper from cereal boxes. She says you can't BUY waxed paper this quality... and she's right. She rolls her pie crusts out on it... I'm more likely to trace a pattern with it! :D

What you will need

  • Recycled men's t-shirt/ Woven cotton WAVE fabric/ Drawstring/ Plastic coffee can with cover
