Cute bag - how big is it?

You could totally sell these.  I was at a little boutique recently and saw similar items - wallets, eyeglasses cases, nesting bowls - all woven from magazines.  Actually, I almost bought one of the bowls when it occured to me that I could make one.  As far as prices go, the bowls were $20-30, the other stuff about $15.

The bag is about hmmmm the size of a standard text book.... i can fit my wallet, cell phone and i-pod and still have room so it works well.

as for the tute i will work on one with pictures - its suprisingly easy and one of those mindless crafts u can do while watchin tv! its great... so anyway i should have it up by this time next week @ the latest!!

Glad you like it and let me know if you have any more ideas on what to make with magazines!!!
