Placemat Scripture Tote

Mandee's little girl is getting baptized next weekend. I wanted to try my hand at making a scripture tote from a placemat. I've heard it's really easy and so I gave it a go. I got the placemat at the dollar store. It was a thick, canvas type material. I lined the inside with some coordinating fabric. I followed a tutorial from Little Birdie Secrets. It's pretty self-explanatory. I totally complicated by adding the lining. I really just got the basics and did my own thing!
Add a big huge flower and it's darling!
I am really tickled with how it turned out. It's defiently not perfect, but it will do the job. And really, who's going to be looking that close at it!
I am going to try and make some with just fabric and some interfacing. I would probably make some improvements, by adding a pocket inside and possbily a closure on top. I'll let ya know how it turns out!
