Dana from MADE shows how you can make a sturdy tote out of a couple of placemats. They’re super cute and super easy to make. Fringed placemats are especially fun made into tote bags. Two placemats sewn together are the perfect size for a summer tote. For a smaller, purse-sized bag, you can use just one placemat. Go to MADE to get the tutorial.
