My church's young women group were making scripture totes last month. The totes were made out of placemats and ribbons for handles. I helped the girls make theirs but I didn't get to finish my children's so we took it home. The placemat kept sitting around for a while. Finally this weekend, I got tired of looking at them so I sat down and made the totes. I don't like unfinished seems so I lined both bags and on one of them I used the same fabric to make the handles. These bags are fairly simple to make. You can whip one up in no time.
