My initial understanding of the word craft were paintings or sculptures. But growing up and gaining exposure I have come to have a better perception.
It’s true that lack births genius, and that’s what led to me to discovering about this craft tote bag. Having had a shortage of plastic bags to use for grocery shopping I went on the internet and viola.

Thanks to impulsive buying at times, or overuse of some choice clothing, I end up having a pile of unused clothes neatly arranged for trashing.
With faint memories from the 90’s, the top notch decor in a home then was; a welcome mat, a rug, a 14′ television set, 4/5 sofa’s symmetrically arranged to fit the parlor, and pictures.
