I had so much fun today weaving magazine pages to make a bag of my own. I am going to work tomorrow on a lining and handles. I am thinking about some black plastic handles from Michaels. Does anyone have an idea about how to attach the lining or the handles? I am thinking of trying E6000 unless anyone has a better idea.

I'll post pics when I'm done. Thanks for the great idea!

I finally finished my version of your purse, and posted it here. Thanks for the great idea and tutorial!

BTW, the only thing I could get to work to attach the lining was Oh So Sticky tape. I tried several different types of glue, but none would stick to the packing tape.

Thanks for your nice comments.

I sewed the lining much like a Jordy bag, with the bottom corners squared off. The handles are sewn to the lining instead of attached to the woven part, so all the tape has to hold or support is the actual magazine outer layer, not the weight of the bag's contents. The lining wasn't the easiest. It definitely took lots of ciphering! If I had had my wits about me, I would have written down measurements, etc., but I just got too excited and wanted to finish it up.

I took my new bag out for a spin today, and had two favorable comments on it. Thanks again for the great idea, and good luck in your business venture! I like the name....

Here is the link for the Jordy bag tutorial. I used the squaring off method to make sure the lining fit well in the bottom. To make it easier on me, I cut the lining over twice the height of the purse, so I wouldn't have to sew a bottom seam. I folded the fabric, cut the little square out of one side, and squared that oneside off. THEN, I put that corner on the OUTSIDE of the bag, and pinned the other side tight so the lining would fit just right. (I just used the bag itself as a template.) When I had both the corners done, I sewed on the pocket, and then folded down the top part and stitched around the edge. I just eyeballed where the handles should go.

I hope this makes sense. Check out the tutorial...it's very clear.

I bought this purse last summer in Argentina, and it's one of my favorite things!  Unfortunately, the edges are coming undone.  Mine's made out of newspaper folded into strips, covered with contact paper, and woven together.  I've never seen one in the US, and always get tons of compliments on mine.  The place where I got it also had notebooks, wallets, and other size purses made of newspapers.
