Picture of DIY Straw Bag

This DIY Straw Bag is incredibly easy and it's made out of the ordinary placemats. I really like the result and if you are also in love with this "straw" trend, just follow the steps and make one by yourself.

Try out this DIY project and snap a pic :)

This is such a clever item and I love how it folds flat when not in use. Also, the details you added are cute. I may just have to be on the lookout for a couple of round straw place mats!

That is really quite something! It is really nice how professional this looks with all the fun details like the braided leather and you just started with ordinary placemats :D
