Make/Customise Your Bag For Life!

Unless you haven't been to the shops this week you'll know that large stores in the UK are now charging for carrier bags. I think this is a good idea if it cuts down on the amount of carrier bags going to landfill, so today I'm sharing two of my How Tos for making and customising your own "Bag For Life"!

This tote bag is really simple to make and all you need is a pretty fabric scrap and your basic sewing supplies. You could even upcycle the fabric from an old skirt/pillowcase/dress etc. A really thrifty make, it folds away and I keep it in my handbag ready for shopping trips! This is also a great bag to use for keeping craft projects safe.  Find the How To for this bag here

There are lots of fabric bags for life available but they are often plain and uninspiring. In this How To I share my customised bag for life, which is given a brighter lease of life with printing, studs and swapping the handles for old belts. 

The finished bag is lovely and bright and I've used it as a beach bag as well as on shopping trips.

Have you made or customised your own Bag For Life?
