so I had been working on my version of stopthefacades' Iron(III)Oxide
dress & I must really have needed sleep because it ended up being far too
long.  kept the scraps of the hem that I had to chop off and the bits from
around the 'pattern' and made them into a little bag.  mm, I hope this
qualifies as a reconstruction or else I've put it in the wrong board.
 

here's what I had to work with.  this might be a little confusing, but if you
look at the original dress, I think it'll make more sense.

so I decided to flip them over & use the 'band' as the top.

here's a detail shot of the handles.  I cut long strips of the fabric
that was left over after I had cut my pieces out and then braided them
together.

this isn't my first project, but it's the first thing that i've
posted.   comments & critique appreciated.

I am a big fan of teal, and that color is just right!  I love the style of the bag (I just made one similar today!) and the braided handles really make the bag.  Nice job!

Is the bag made of jersey? (It looks like it) That would definitely make an interesting purse.

Props on using your scraps for something productive!

I definitely have to agree with mebsmommy - the braided handles really do make the bag Smiley

thank you guys!

& it is made out of jersey.  it's kind of stretchy, too. 
but I lined it and ironed in a little interfacing that I found
in my house to the band, so it's actually sturdy.
