The Bag of Flowers

Don't you just love spring?  Birds sing, green things grow, and flowers start popping up everywhere..... even on thrifted canvas bags :)

Grow Creative: Crochet Flower Canvas Bag Up-cycle

Ok, so this bag make-over didn't just happen on it's own.  It took a little work.

I started with an ugly 75-cent canvas bag from the thrift store and my horde of crochet flowers (I made all these flowers years ago. I had no idea what to do with them all... they were just fun to make)!

I hot glued the flowers (you can find a great pattern here) and a couple sea pennies on.  So much easier than sewing them all on!

Now I have a cute bag to take to the library or the beach!

  1. Your bag is beautiful! I love how you used a cheap advertisement bag . . . we all have a few of those hanging around. This is a blue ribbon make-over . . . A+
    Have a lovely week and be prepared for many compliments on your bag :)

  3. Super cute upcycle! I would stick with the library though. You don't want to ruin something so cute by getting your flowers covered in sand. :)

  9. Great bag makeover! I have a couple bags that have hideous logos/wording on them, and this is a great idea.

  20. Have already started on your wonderful idea for some bags I have hoarded. But it occurred to me that this would work just as well on some shirts that have small logos. Thanks!
