How-to: Make Reusable Items From a Broken Tote Bag



Finally, there was even enough fabric leftover to make these shabby chic coasters!

To make your own, simply run zig zagged stitches around the edges and across the squares. You can also use biased tape to finish your coasters, but I ran out.

What are you upcycling these days?
