Okay, so a great friend on Craftster said she wanted a knot bag but couldn't figure it out, so I looked at several and decided on this great tutorial:

http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2008/06/japanese_knot_bag_tutorial.html

and made my very first one!  I chose Japanese style fabric I thought she'd like, and it turned out pretty neat!  And the best part, she loves it.   Cheesy  You can see the other fabric, the black and white, on the strap.

Thanks, gals!  It's so funny, because the hardest part is the very last part with the handles.  I used fabric glue to get it all nice and tight.  And it took a little brain-twisting to figure out what she meant.  But hey, this was my first one, and probably the most confusing thing I've ever made...LOL...and if I can do it, you surely can.

Oh I know, fat quarters are sooo much fun.  And yep, this just took two and left scraps for little things like bookmarks.  Hey, thanks for posting that updated link for me.  And thanks Pixieval!   Smiley  I'm now working on my first messenger bag.   Smiley
