Today we are making a gift any girl would be happy to receive…a knotty bag!
I got this super duper EASY idea from Martha’s web site. There are two ways to create the bag and I used both of them to achieve my desired look.
Here is what you will need to get started: a scarf or piece of fabric (at least 36″ inches square) and a pair of purse handles. I got my scarf at a thrift store for a dollar and picked up the handles at Joann’s for $4.20 (40% off coupon).
Start by placing your scarf or fabric face down and tie a knot in each corner.
Leave about a 5″ tale on the end of each knot because we will tie them again later. Here is what your bag should look like so far.
Now take two adjacent corners and slip them through the front of one of the handles. Then pull them out to opposite sides.
Take each corner and wrap around to the front of the handle and tie a knot.
Repeat this process with the other two corners and you are all finished!
Can you believe how easy that was?! I love how it’s super slouchy and has a vintagey feel.
This is essentially two great gifts in one…a fun bag and a fantastic scarf!
I have loved spending some time with you today! I hope you’ll stop by Crafts & Sutch and say hi! 🙂 Thank you so much, Michele, for letting me come visit! I wish you all a very happy holiday season!
