Make a Cute Library Tote From Placemats

Friends, I was attracted to this library tote bag at an outing and was both impressed and excited to hear that it was a DIY project. I got the tutorial and went to work. I am happy to say that I got the nods for my effort. I now have not only a library tote bag but also a general shopping bag. Why don't you feel out the tutorial too and work on it to make your library trip a stylish one!
