Craft Roundup: It's All in the Bag

From the beach to the cabin – you'll need bags to carry around all your summer stuff. So, create your own with these four ideas!

You can never have enough bags! When it comes to summer activities – heading off to day camp, long weekend visits to see family or a quick trip to the beach – you'll need a fun bag to pack all your goodies in. You can make a bag from scratch or add your own creative touches to a plain, ready-to-decorate tote found at the craft store in the clothing aisle. Check out this week's Make It roundup for some bagable inspiration.
