I just finished making this bag- I've never made one before, so it's quite simple and has it's flaws.  It's made out of a shirt I found at the thrift store and duct tape.  Sorry, I have an age old digital camera and lack the talent for taking good pictures.  Lips sealed

this is the front of it

here's the inside.  A little boring... no pockets or anything...

and this is it hanging.

Very very simple, I know, but I hope you like it.  Oh yes, and this is my first post, so please bear with me and my awefulness.  Tongue

I like scrounging interesting stuff up in the thrift store, and I do find some nice stuff.... I have to admit that I'm still working on my duct tape skills, though, and that making the bag was very trying in my patience.

Thanks for the comments everyone!  Grin
