today i’m sharing a simple way to revamp a plain straw bag that I recently picked up in the $1.00 bin at target.
– material (used black cotton)
-hot glue gun
– skewer (needlepoint needle, pencil, or anything that can poke through the straw bag will also work)
I used all black but any color would look great.
Step 1: tear strips of fabric (mine was about two inches wide and different lengths)
Step 2: using your skewer poke fabric strip through the top rim of the bag
Step 3: pull half of the fabric strip through the bag
Step 4: tie the strip in a knot and continue doing this all the way around the top of the bag.
Step 5: cut ribbon and poke ends into the bag where the mouth should go
Step 6: glue center of ribbon down
Step 7: apply hot glue to the buttons
Step 8: position the buttons right above the ribbon mouth and hold for a few seconds.
have fun & enjoy!!
