Here's how to make a cute clear tote bag purse out of a shower curtain liner in just a few easy steps! It's budget-friendly, adds a cute touch to any outfit AND is perfect for the clear bag policy for stadiums and events.
Clear shower curtain liner (I used 3-gauge but I recommend the thicker 8-gauge)
Laces or any material you'd like to use for the straps/handles

Step 1: Cut Bag Shape
Fold the shower liner in half so both layers of grommets line up at the edge. Cut the size and shape you'd like your bag to be. I chose a small/medium rectangular shape.
Then cut a double-sided panel for the bottom of the bag. Glue the two layers together with small dots of hot glue at each corner.
Step 2: Glue Pieces to Form Bag Shape
Hot glue the edges of the bottom panel to the bottom edges of the top piece to create the base of the bag.
Then run a line of hot glue up and along the inside of the bag from the four corners of the bottom piece and pinch them together. This will create the box shape and will allow the bag to stand and keep its form.
Step 3: Add Ribbon Around the Base
Hot glue ribbon (or any other material you like) around the bottom of the base for a nice accent. If you'd like, you can also line the other edges of the bag, but I chose to only outline the base to maintain the clear look at the top.
Step 4: Add Straps/Handles
Lastly, it's time to add the straps or handles. I'm using boot laces from the dollar store, but this would also look great with a leather belt, fabric strips, chain, etc. Get creative!
You now have a trendy, clear bag that's perfect for so many different occasions!
