Reader and FB fan Cathy from Handcrafted Memories created a cute holiday tote bag from an oversized dollar store Christmas stocking. I especially want you to see her ingenious hack for creating this tote bag: she combined a free reusable shopping bag with the stocking to reduce eliminate sewing time. Since she doesn’t have a sewing machine, she used her hot glue gun to create the bag. And since she used a reusable shopping bag as the base for this bag, it’s already sturdy and provides enough support for whatever she wants to tote around.

Project Estimate:

  • Oversized Christmas stocking, $1
  • Reusable tote bag, free or $1
