I was looking for some holiday themed placemats and found some adorable tea towels that became a cute little reversible bag:





Enjoy!

If people could put rainbows in zoos they'd do it.

"ordinary teatowels"??
they're too cute to dry your dishes on!
What does the inside/other side of the bag look like??
(or is that what the first photo that hasn't worked is..??)

Hi GirlyGirlBags  Cheesy

I, too, love the Christmas balls.  So retro!!


PS.  I still use that bag you made me - it's such a great size and shape.  Grin

wowee! that looks so great! i never see tea towels that cool. i should be more on the lookout.

i love bright colors so much, though i find that i end up wearing plain olf black and gray, because i don't want anyone to stare at me.  then i see great things like this and i try to be brave.

what a good job.

That is way awesome.  I am always amazed when I see people who see something to craft in every store.

GirlyGirlBags,

I forgot to ask you before--what are the bag's dimensions and the strap length?  Thanx! Cheesy
