Members of my family run a couple microbreweries.  They sent me a box full of grain bags.  I am upcycling them into bags and things.  This is a prototype for a messenger bag. 



I need to mess with the proportions a bit but I do like how the round flap came out.  It currently doesn't have a closure.  Does it need one?  Magnetic? Button?  Velcro?  Suggestions please.

More pics on my blog.  http://twasbrilligand.blogspot.com/2014/08/prototype.html

Really cool idea. I have a friend who would love this even more. I wonder if some of my local microbreweries would share their grain bags....hmmm.

For the closure...what will it be used for? Apples that can roll out? Then, I would say yes. Books from the library, probably not necessary. Smaller purse style items...yes. For that maybe an underneath zipper might be a good idea.

Very neat bags. I like the flap, too.

This is so pretty! I love the contrast between the pink and white. Great idea to repurpose a grain bag  Smiley
