Tea towels never looked this good as a bag. I love how easy it is to make this bag, you could even install some small side pockets for you phone and keys inside. The great thing about this is that you can make it to fit your body size so if you are petite, you can make your own version of a tote that suits you.

This DIY bag is too cute! What a great gift idea. You could make them in different colors for all of your friends!
