Cutting, folding, putting together, and sewing these bags take such a long time >_< Yet I just can't stop folding old magazines! hehe

They must take you just forever to make! But they are absolutely gorgeous! They look like expensive designer bags you would find in boutiques for outrageous prices. I love that you have found a new way to recycle/upcycle something! Kudos!

these are amazing!
for the bottom of the purse, did you sew fabric in the bottom? or did you fold the paper so that there was no hole on the bottom, and just sewed the sides together? hopefully that question makes sense.
