rug tote

I have this habit of browsing through the rug section of just about any store thinking, boy the pattern on that rug would make great fabric for a purse. And it finally dawned on me- why not just transform a rug into a purse?!? So I picked out a small rug and got busy turning it into a tote bag.

I bought a small rug and some fun purse handles. 

First I trimmed the edges off the rug and folded it in half.

Instead of using the sewing machine I used my favorite fabric glue-Fabric Fusion to attach the handles with two panels of rug (I used my scraps).

I closed up the sides, turned the purse right side out and VOILA...a super fun tote!
