Hi Everyone,

I thought I would give it a try since I got the book.  The only difference is that I made mine out of fabric strips 1/4 wide. 

Will include short tute on how to connect the strips......

this will allow you to not sew in so many ends.

This is the fabric used.


As you can see it is larger then most of the Fat Bottom Bag.


Almost forgot the handles are County Crock margarine 3# tub, with the middle cut out.

Thanks for looking and let me know what you think.

Elli


Edit:
The first picture is two different color plastic bag to show how to put together strips.  The bag is made out of fabric strips,
1/4 inch strips....45 inches wide.  This bag took about 2 1/2 yards of fabric and size L crocheting hook.  I do plan to line the bag.

Fantastic adaptation!  I love the fabric strips.  It really did change the size of the bag.  If the fabric has any cotton in it, it should be fairly sturdy.  A++. Grin

That is excellent!!!  It's nice to see that people are actually crochet/Knitting with fabric.  I work at a fabric store and we started selling hooks/needles but this fabulous idea never caught on.  Have you tried cutting the fabric on the bias?  It frays less and you can make the strip as long as you want.  Your idea is great for using multiple colours.  Cheesy

No beetelpose, I did not think to cut on bias.  I liked the frayed look but will try it in another project.  I use to make rugs out of old sheets......my grandmothers idea.  "Reuse" all you have.  Thanks to everyone for checking out all my little projects.
