I've had these 3 placemats for a while, so I decided to make a bag from them. I used one of the placemats, which I cut in half, to make 2 pockets-one on the outside and one on the inside of the purse. I love making placemat purses because they are fun and easy and fast. I'll use this one to carry my "stuff" to church. I usually embellish these purses, but I decided to leave this one alone. I think it turned out cute.
