First step is to cut the bag apart....cut the top handles off and then just follow the seams and cut all the way around. Your goal is to get two even pieces.......................
LIKE THIS!!!. You will have to do some trimming to get them even. I did not use a pattern for this , I just eye balled the pieces but you could ...just to be sure...lay out a template for accuracy. At this point sew the pieces right sides together leaving a small opening on the bottom. Turn the pillow right side out, stuff with fiber fill and sew opening closed.
You will end up with this FABULOUS LOOKING TRENDY MONOGRAM ACCENT PILLOW! This project was soooooo inexpensive....the tote bag cost a whopping .25 cents and it took all of 1/2 hour to get it done start to finish. The best part is I can also use the twine that was the handle to hang my price tags with! A total recycle project that looks like a million bucks!!
SO get out there and rummage thru the tote bags next time and give this a try! Have fun!
