WHAT ONE HONEY BUN CAN DO....

Two different types of cosmetic bags....



One tote...



This table runner...you can find the directions here.




That is alot out of one honey bun...

I say SWEEEEEEEEEEETTTT!!

Now for the next tote (no honey bun involved) but I wanted to share with you my scrunchie handles. If you look above at the tote, it too has scrunchie handles.




Inside the handles are these ribbons....look familiar? These are the ribbons that come tied around your honey buns and jelly rolls.....so next time, don't throw them away.



I make the casing about a half size longer than the ribbon...



use a saftey pen and pull the ribbon through the casing...sew each end...and wallllla!!



A nice scrunchie handle....if I had to do this green one over, I would have made the casing wider...least way, you get the idea....turns out so cute...adds a different dimension to a tote.

Remember you saw it here first!!

Love the handle idea, because it looks so much easier than some I've done. A honeybun can be a very good thing, with all those things to do!

Fiesta said...

How clever of you to use those "ribbons" that are tied around the honey buns! Great job!

VERY cute scrunchie handles!!! I always make scrunchie straps for my daughter's dresses...but I use elastic. I can't wait to use this method with a bag :) :)

kpaints said...

Cute idea, you are so clever and look at all you did from one honey bun!! Great!

Jackie said...

You're so creative and smart about it too! I would have never thought to see how many items I could get out of a jelly roll. I'm surprised though!

You can do alot with a honey bun! Love all the bags. Great idea about the handles. I save those "ribbons" from all my pre-cut fabric that has them. I toss them in drawer and forget about them. I thought about using them for a handle but never came even close to thinking about covering them with fabric! Terrific!


p.s. I ordered a Go! today. WooHoo! Hubby twisted my arm and made me do it lol.

Joanna said...

Everything is adorable. You squeezed alot out of that honey bun. Compliments on your new pic.

Deanna said...

Those are great handles--and congratulations on your continuing weight loss. Maybe you can reward yourself with....Fabric!

What a cute idea! Love the scrunchie handles :o) I picked up an orange bundle this spring for my youngest daughter... she fell in love with the orange *ribbon* tied around it! Wants the ribbon included in the project :o)

Just love the scrunchie handle, and yes I share your honey bun joy. Anything already cut is sweet! Your table runner is great - love it.
