Craftster user ailurophile made a funky little purse (she calls it the “Shag Bag”) out of two microfiber car-washing mitts from the dollar store. The shaggy texture of the fabric and the bright color makes it a fun accent to your wardrobe. Craftster user penguinite made another version of the Shag Bag using a single mitt and plastic tubing and chain for the bag’s handle, which is a fun addition.

I know this kind of project isn’t everyone’s taste, but it definitely gets you thinking outside the box!

Project Estimate:

  • Microfiber car washing mitt, $1-2
  • Sewing stuff, on hand

Total cost: $1 and up
