Upcycle Ugly Insulated Bag

I attended a workshop last year and they gave us these ugly insulated bags - although they came with lots of fun goodies. When I got home I just threw mine in the closet and forgot about it. I ran across it again today and was about to toss it when  I realized it really is a pretty good bag - just ugly.
I cut some fabric using pinking shears and glued it to the canvas pocket with fabric glue and then added ribbon. Looks much better now!

  6. Ooo Aaah! Best. Idea. Ever. Because you weren't joking when you said ugly in the beginning. I think I have 2 of these in the barn that I should whip into shape before summer picnicking. Thanks!

  7. I can out-do that ugly with a bigger, charcoal gray bag! What a great way to make it more attractive and distinctive! Your sewing machine caught my eye in the 500+ blogs in the May 20 Blog Hop. Yeah, doing some late catching up. I'm just in as 341. Janet with a pic of 2 dogs on a couch. I love to sew, though. I can't get much done though for many reasons. We're probably close in age, too.
