Very nice. I've never bought placemats at Pier 1; I need to check them out.

This is really cute! These would make great gifts. Never thought of looking at Pier 1 for placemats.

What a cute bag! Who would have thought that it started life as a placemat?

Deepika, that is just stunning! Right before this article came out I saw purses just like this in a boutique for $50! And yours looks so much better! -Ann

I love the bag. What did you use for the strap? It looks perfect with it.

Thanks everyone! Peggy, DrSue do check Pier 1, they have cool placemats! They had one in faux (I think) leather too whcih was on sale.

Ann $50!! that's ridiculous!

shellbelle I just used an inexpensive cording from Joanns. But they have lots of cool looking straps, some in leather too. As soon as I find some more placemats, I plan to make many more of these.

Running out the door to Pier 1 .... Great bag and a nice pick-me-up after your KS experience.
