Personalized Purple Satin Tote Bag

This is a personalized tote bag for my grand-niece for her birthday to carry around all of her toys and goodies.
  • Purple Satin Tote Bag - $1
  • 1/8 yd lavender organza (.44 cents)
  • 1/16 yd lavender tulle (.12 cents)
  • Thread - on hand
  • Scissors - on hand
  • Needle
  • Violet Glitter Fabric Paint on hand

Total cost: $1.56 + tax

The purple tote bag is from The Dollar Store. The flower fabric I make using lavender organza for the petals using the tutorial below.

The center is lavender tulle that is about 1 1/2 wide and 8 inches long folded in half horizontally then folded accordian style then tied in the center with thread and with the thread wrapped around the bottom and stitched to the inside of the petals on the above flower.
The name and embellishments are in violet glitter fabric paint.
