Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

I had plans to make a briefcase with my floppy disks, but life got in the way, so I made this shopping bag instead.

I found the handles in a bag of stuff that was being thrown out, had the floppy disks left over from the old days when that was our storage device, and bought the zip ties to hold it all together.

Here's the bag.  Full on view.


The inside.


In profile.


Then I gave it a test.  I took it to the grocery store to get a reaction from the folks who work there.  The bagger had no problem putting my groceries in it.


And I even got my five cent bag refund.


This bag has 34 floppy disks and over 100 zip ties in it.

Enjoy!!

 I like it a lot! I can imagine the attention you are going to get. I have an idea... Make a square shaped on for knitting projects... just put a lining in it. It would stand up great on it's own. I'd borrow that idea, but I haven't any floppies...
  Have fun with it!
