Throw Pillow Tote Bag

So, you are wandering around a yard sale or thrift store, or past a clearance shelf at a box store, and you see a beautiful throw pillow.  And it’s CHEAP.  Cheaper than what you’d pay for that beautiful fabric it’s made of if you were to head to the craft store to buy it.  But it doesn’t really match your decor.  Or maybe you just don’t need yet another throw pillow (goodness knows that is my husband’s answer).  Next time this happens, don’t walk away – instead, buy it and turn it into a cute tote bag like this one from Amber at Damask Love.  Brilliant!  [how to make a throw pillow tote bag]
