Okay, perhaps I am just all giddy with the fact that I finally dug out my sewing machine after a while gathering dust.. or that I finally found the perfect project to make with  my grandfather's old ties (thank you, THANK YOU, Rickrackruby!!) http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45985.0

So here 'tis.. my first Inspired by and Posted Craftster Project!! Cheesy
this is the front:

and the back (err.. ignore the wayward threads needing to be clipped.. those multiply like bunnies, it seems)

and hanging..

I did find that one of the ties I used as the gusset is beginning to dry rot.. so might have to figure out a patch of some sort.. I hate to tear apart whole projects.. hehe.

anyway.. ta-da!! Cheesy This one is in memory of my grandpa Smiley

thanks Smiley

Funny, I am now getting requests from friends for me to make them bags as well. They are going to comb thrift shops.
