If you want to revamp your accessory collection without spending all your cash, then this 'Henry Happened' DIY tote lets you make a casual and chic carrier. It also uses the most unlikely material: a placemat.

Conventionally, placemats are used as placeholders and as a means to keep food off the kitchen table; however, this Henry Happened tote utilizes the placement as a means to create a crossbody purse. Crossbody purses are the best because there is no fussing with their straps and they keep your hands free.

In order to create this bag you'll need a woven placement, wooden beads, a parachute cord and some embroidery thread. The tutorial entails folding the placemat in half, stitching it together and attaching the desired length of strap. Don't forget to add some tassels and wooden beads to this bag to add a little boho touch.
