These monster-looking bags are a great way for children to have a personalized tote to carry around all their belongings, and not only is this child-friendly purse adorable, but it's also creatively made from old pillows.

This DIY project lets people utilize their old and unwanted cushions, and it's a great way to transform these unused items into something practical for children. Some of items required for this project include unwanted pillows, fabric scraps and a sewing machine. Simply cut and sew your pillow design into a square shape, leaving the top open, then turn it inside out. Use the given monster template to attach the eyes and mouth, and then simply sew on the handles.

Featured on the blog 'My Poppet,' this upcycled tote bag is a great inexpensive way to provide accessories for children, while making use of ordinary pieces of home decor.
