I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.

Here is my final product:

My newspaper came in this plastic bag and I knew I had to make something from it:

So, I used queenofdiy's great tutorial for a cosmetic bag, found here:


I fused Target bags and Aeropastle (sp?) bags together, the target bag makes a great faux lining:

Here's a close-up of the front, this is on both sides:

The Aeropastle shows through worse in the photo than in real life.

The words are printed on paper and cut out.  I wouldn't recommend doing it with bigger pieces of paper because the plastic shrinks around it and they kind of crinkled up.

Also, I'm so mad at myself because the layers of plastic slighty separated when I turned it right side out.  It wasn't bad at all, but I thought I could fix it by re-ironing it in that spot and now I have two small pin holes.  grrrrr   They aren't bad, but you know how that is, don't you???

Anyway, thanks for looking!!

That is, quite frankly, incredibly awesome!!!

My newspaper came in that same bag a week or so ago. I might just have to go and make something out of it now.  Smiley

Live in Ohio by chance?

Thank you!  No, I live in SouthWest Michigan.  I bet you got the bag about the same time I did---wow, even in ohio!

 I had to get my second bag from my mother in law.  She's such a sweetheart, she dug around in her trash to find it and never even asked me what I needed it for, she's a gem.
