Conceal Those Unsightly Bags

I'm dying for Santa (a.k.a my husband) to bring me a sewing machine for Christmas this year. In the meantime I'm storing up all the fun projects I want to work on when I get my hands on one. Just added to the pile—makeovers for all the canvas totes I've collected over the years.

I like the green feeling I get when I take my own bags to the grocery store, and canvas totes are my catchall gym bags too. But I'm ready to give mine a new look. Design Sponge has a fun tutorial for creating pockets on the outside of your totes that mask any pesky advertisements and logos. I think I'll take it a step further and dye my bags before giving them pockets, for a more finished look. The ruffle's not for me, but the fabric flowers look fun! Check out the tutorial and more photos here.
