Scripture Tote/Purse

I have been wanting to make a placemat scripture tote for awhile.  My friend's birthday is on Friday, and I know she has been wanting one of these, so I forged ahead.

I followed this tutorial from Little Birdie Secrets.  However, I could NOT find a cute placemat in the limited time I had, so instead I used some cute, sturdy fabric.  I used a placemat I already have as a pattern, cutting 1/2 inch extra all around for a seam allowance.  Then I put right sides together and sewed it, leaving a small space to turn it right side out.  After turning it, I topstitched around the whole thing, and it turned out a lot like a placemat!

Another change from the tutorial is that I just used ribbon for handles.  After the tutorial was finished, I embellished with a large flower.  I hope she likes it!  I think I might have to make one for myself!
