this is pretty much a no brainer, but I didn't see any others posted... so here's a little bookbag that I made out of a leftover burlap rice bag.

all that I did was sew in a liner and add a little notepad and pencil pocket on the inside.
(yeah, that's all... this was my first sewing project ever and it took a few attempts before getting it right!)  I'm not sure what to do with it now, maybe I'll fill it with magazines and give it to my friend for her birthday... any suggestions?

That is a great job for a first time sewer. And, if you don't know what to do with it, you can always give it to me  Grin  Oh, you meant what to put in it for your friend...

Anyway, beautiful...

That is a really cute bag... Maybe I should be your friend now?   Wink

but yes, it'd make a great gift for your friend... or use it yourself... One can never own too many bags!!  Grin *eyes my ever growing collection*

Great job, J/A/S/O/N! Esp. for a newbie sewer! I'm sure your friend will love it.

I'm going to have to go get myself some rice this weekend, so I can get a neat rice bag. And then eat rice for a loooonnnnggg time...

thats really cute. i wish i'd thought of lining our rice bags. we just used them as they were, for grocery shopping..until they fell apart : P
oh.. and i'm the prime example of never having too many bags. i have 45 in total now i think.. and my collection is ever growing ( hhaha though i've only made about 3 of them....)
