I think this is so cool!  I used regular placemats and lined them with scrap fabrics from around my craft room.  

They're cheap and inexpensible which makes them great for different holidays....you could almost make one for every week!!    Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy   (hmm....)

I didn't add any sort of pockets or extra divisions that I normally add for my "everyday" purses-but since this is seasonal I figured I wouldn't use the purse long enough.  Besides it just adds more bulk to the purse, and more space for me to stuff receipts, pens, chapstick, etc. that would eventually stay forever in that purse because I hardly ever clean out my purses!!

Anyways, on to the purses!!

Outside of one, I bought one placemat and one kitchen towel...even though they were the same stiffness, and the kitchen towel was bigger.

Thanks for looking!!

C & C also welcome!    Grin Grin Grin


I forgot to add this when I first posted these awesome bags-but I received my inspiration from a couple of posts from right here on craftster!  I wish I could remember the member/post I received my inspiration but I'm sure if you check the tute page or scroll through a couple of the pages you will see the original post. 

Thanks again, and I'm sorry about forgetting to mention my inspiration.  Thank you craftster, you are my muse!!   Cheesy

Those are pretty cute. I'm loving the blocking on the kitchen towel bag. Smiley
