    A few years ago these were really popular....so, of course, I made TONS of them! Well, guess what? Now I have a lot of them leftover and noone seems to buy this style anymore. What do you do with your left-over crafts when they seem to be out of style?

    The first thing I thought of was, why not embellish them with different stuff, maybe even some rick rack, beads, cool things. I love them. I dont think it would take much to "update" them at all. Good luck and keep us posted. :)

    I only sell about 1-2 at the craft fairs now. The first couple of years, I sold tons of them, couldn't keep up with them!

    I donate my leftover crafts to charity. Churches, fund raisers for those with medical issues are esp. Appreciative and ppl loved them! I had old purses I made and embellished flip flops. Make " baskets " out of them. Went to thrift store got baskets, put, purse, flip-flops , Sunglasses Ect. Whatever around house. Sell great!!!!

    I would use them as a 'gift bag'. Then put the actual gift inside.

    I wouldn't say they are out of style, I think using them as a gift bag is great. Nursing homes would love them and they make great diaper bags. World of Charity Stitching love getting bags. Let me know if you need some information.

    I think they would make nice bags for the beach,(sun tan lotion, sun glasses, etc., or even a bag for an over nighter some place...put your brush, comb, hair spray etc. Hope this helps! I think they are really cute.
