Tote-ally Makeful from Confessions of Refashionista

My personalized #bemakeful embellished tote

Confessions of Refashionista

I recently received a groovy little surprise tote bag in the post from Canadian lifestyle specialty channel Makeful with the challenge to transform it into a personalized piece of awesomeness. (I think I succeeded =O)


  • a vintage hankie
  • felt (or non-fraying fabric scraps)
  • a leftover pocket
  • vintage sewing themed charms
  • embroidery needle & thread
  • sewing machine

How to make it

Step 1: I searched through my stash and grabbed a vintage hankie, felt, a leftover pocket and the vintage sewing themed charms that I’d been saving for ages. Then simply chopped out a mini me from the felt bits and stitched and embroidered it all together!

Step 2: I love those little charms – it really pays to sort through and keep a well organized stash!
