I was inspired by this tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=52309.0
to make a woven magazine purse for a friend who is moving away (so if she was just lying when she said she liked it, I'll never know!) I ended up trying to sew the lining to the top using my sewing machine and that was a disaster, so I sort of finished it by hand and then covered up the mess with a folded strip of fabric sewn by hand to the lining on the inside and hot glued to the magazines on the outside. For all I know, it will fall apart in a week!

This looks great. I am thinking --since you went to so much trouble to make this as a going away gift-- you will stay in touch with your friend. Then you can know how well it holds together. Or take the momentum from this project to make one for yourself.
