From Drab to Fab!!

For those that have kids getting ready to start school, or like mine who already have, it can be expensive getting all the supplies!! Well, we are on a tight budget and Lexi wanted a messenger bag that cost 34.00! I thought that was ridiculous so we found an inexpensive one from Wal-Mart for $9 and with a fat quarter and some ric rac and a button I gave it a little make-over! It only took me 10 min and a total of 1.75 extra to make hers stand out a little! She was happy and so was I!!! I forgot to get a before picture.

Fat Quarter of Fabric .99 Cents @ any Craft Store

Free (cause I had some scraps at home)

.75 cents for One big lime Green button

Total for a revamped messenger bag 11.75!!
