dollar store challenge

This was my project from last week's dollar store challenge. I'll try to get a tutorial up soon. 


For this week's theme I had absolutely no ideas whatsoever. None. I thought a gander around my local Dollar Tree would help spark some ideas. I was right. These tea towels immediately caught my eye. I'm really digging stripes these days so I bought 4 of them (and a bunch of other crap I didn't need), however, it only took one of them and some scraps to make

 This:

 I wanted to name it, but all of my names were super lame. So for now it's dubbed: "The Dollar Store Tea Towel and Some Scraps" bag. Clearly a shorter name would be more ideal....I'm open to suggestions.

ps. this week's challenge is "thrifty" if you get a minute go check it out here.
