I also think that a scrap of satin ribbon would be good for the binding  Smiley

The rivets came from a big box of miscellaneous leather-working supplies that my mom scored from an auction...
I think they're called "cap" rivets...
Maybe searching google for different rivets would give a supplier?  I will certainly have to find a source for them once I use these up, that's for sure  Smiley

Thanks for clarifying batgirl Smiley

Well, I suppose I'm not really worried about people "stealing" ideas from me...if other people wanna give it a try themselves, more power to them  Cheesy 

It's taken me awhile to get good at it (and still usually takes me close to 2 hrs to make one of  these), but there are probably other similar ways to make them as well. Feel free to experiment!!

Yes, I definitely like the yellow one  Smiley  The contrast against the "black" water is great!

The fish is really great...I would love to have that on my wall---oh, say, about 8 feet tall?  That would be awesome  Smiley

lol!   Cheesy  I suppose If I didn't wash the bags well enough, they would still smell like dog chow...I would have a bunch of hungry puppies following me around! 

I just realized this might fit into the "reconstructed" category?  Hmmm.  Either way, I hope you all enjoy them  Grin

That's an awesome concept!  I like the second photo the best... 

(you look like you're saying, "what, you don't think I could beat you up while wearing this dress?!  Try me!)   Grin

I like the hardcore kitty the best...I'd definitely sport him (her?) around if it were mine  Cheesy

My mom has been saving Birdseed bags and Dogfood bags for me to make these...they're definitely a conversation-starter!  I use scrap fabrics to line them, usually a thicker dark fabric if I've got it, or felt might even work.  The red "Old Roy" bag has black corduroy on the inside  Cheesy  and the handles are made from clear aquarium tubing.  I made myself a blue one with a cell-phone pocket on the side, and it's now my favorite bag! 







The pattern was traced from a "market bag" that I bought years ago when I was in Mexico...I really like the rounded-bottom shape.  It's only three pieces sewn together (the bottom and sides are one long rectangle), plus the lining.  I posted a blog a week or so ago which has a few more photos of different variation, plus additional info on how I attach the handles---

I'm a bit addicted to making these ...I've got two others started, and I'm trying to find some cat food bags to try next  Smiley  Of course, I sometimes really have to scrub the bags to get the oils off them...most pet foods have some terrible stuff in it  Tongue

and I finished these this morning...

I'm going over to look at the tutorial right away!

My husband bought me (and himself!) a DS a few days ago...our kids were like "Whaaat?  You're too old to have one of those!"  We'll see who's laughing when I have an awesome case for mine!  Grin
