Straw and Needlepoint

Straw bags are a wonderful summer staple that somehow never seems to go out of style.  You can use an old one, update a new one, or buy one that tends toward trendy.

I love how you can take a simple straw bag, add some ribbon and even a needlepoint Christmas ornament and make it your own.  This was is from Po's Point in Charlotte, N.C.  Add an equestrian-themed one it horsey, using your initials, maybe in "Hermes orange" or "Gucci green".

You can find these basic straw bags at stores like Wal-Mart or even a craft store like Michaels. Keep your eyes open.  They are out there and they can be inexpensive.

 Add a nice ribbon to spice it up.

 Use your imagination on what you might add to it.  The possibilities are endless.

 Your initials maybe....

 Or take a needlepoint design from an ornament and add it to your bag.

I love having something I created all on my own.  And these are keepsakes.  If you get tired of it, create a new needlepoint piece for it. 
Enjoy the lazy days of summer!

  1. Loving the horsey style - perfect for picnics or beach days. What about adding a charm or two such as little horseshoes, or even a rosette?
