I kind of like the idea, enola! I've been meaning to turn a rice sack into a purse for aaaages, so what about a challenge to turn any commercially produced container into a crafty new bag? Everything from cereal boxes to tupperware to produce nets would be fair game Cheesy

I like that idea: any commercial container into a bag. It could turn into an alliteration frenzy: Craft a Commercial Container into a Crafty Carry-all.

I was thinking a purse/bag/wallet from your own material. Weaving ribbons, sewing fabric strips, taping duct tape and fusing juice pouches, that sort of thing.

How about a bag based on your favorite character (Disney, Mario Bros, whatever)

A bag with the shape of an animal? Fish, cat, dog, shark, or inspired by your pet, like an aquarium bag?

A kids bag, unusual closure bag, nature inspired bag, a bag with eyes, reversible bag, with changeable front, a bag with some sort of sewing technique, make a fun sportsbag,...

I always have lots of ideas  Grin , I just need time  Wink

What about a bag that showcases your craft?  Like the flap is a mini art quilt or there is embroidery or a painted panel.

Looking for a vintage magazine (1974 - 1978) that has a fabric nativity set w/ people and animals. An example: http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showphoto.php?photo=440861&ppuser=143144.
