Made: End-Of-Summer Bag

(image sources linked via Pinterest)

This summer I was loving some tote bags I saw on the internet that appeared to be made out of rag rugs.  Now I'm far too cheap to buy something that I think I can DIY myself so I bought a small cotton rug at IKEA (remember this haul?)  and built my own bag.  Of course, by the time I made it, it was the end of summer and so it only got to go on one trip to the beach and a week or two of going to work with me before it got replaced by my cold weather tote bag (made by my MIL).  But I imagine it will survive many future trips to the coast and the pool in the coming summers.



One IKEA cotton rug
Two yards cotton webbing
Denim scraps for binding and inner pocket

 Now I'm inspired to try to replicate a bag like one of these for fall:
