question - for your strips of magazine..are they single strips? or is it a PAGE out of the magazine folded up into a thin strip?

I used newspaper (wallstreet journal) last night and made strips out of a quarter page. they are WAY too thick and what I wove refuses to bend/fold (its gonna make a nifty placemat or something lmao

well i got around to making another bag with some friends. This time we used contact paper. don't try using packaging tape, it rips badly during sewing. the strips are from magazines i used a paper cutter to slice them in half before folding the edges both in twice, this gives you a strong flexible sheet. Each panel uses approx 14 strips, but the strips vary in size.
the inside, my first pocket ever!
this one is very different than the clutch i made earlier but holds a ton more!
sorry this one is upside down!
a friend made this i like the black and white!

Okay- here it is the tute for the tote bag. It may be very hard to see, I've never posted a tute before, excuse the spelling, Its made in paint. If you have any questions I would be happy to try to help. Good luck! and please post pictures of completed projects, I would love to see them!!!

 Also there are lots of color schemes you can try. I used rainbow across and random up and down. It helps if you use some white with black writing to keep it from being to bright.

A friend did it in black and white (think checkerboard) which looked pretty amazing, my next project! I think my sis may be getting one for her birthday in her favorite colors!

Hope it works out to be your new favorite purse! Don't hesitate to ask I the tute may not be the best.
