BRILLIANT!
And it looks like it is a joy to carry, big enough, soft inside and out...Way to go!

The bag is so beautiful and the instructions are very easy to follow.
Once my sewing skills improve, and I gather a sufficient number of ties, I will try this. Grin

I have seen many purses made with ties but I have to say, This is the prettiest one. You did a fantastic job!

Like everyone has said before me- that is a beautiful bag. I'll have to try it myself, now that I've got loads of ties! But one question...Does it really hold books and such for school?

This is a brand new design.  And school hasn't started yet.  So, I'll frankly admit that no one has ever actually carried this bag to school. 

I can say that it is big enough and the stitching and straps are sturdy enough and the construction is durable enough for me to believe that one COULD use it as a bookbag. 

Take care and thanks for all the nice comments!

 Grin  This is the absolute best tutorial I have ever seen in my entire life!  Seriously, I want to make this very project right now.  Too bad I'm really tired, and oddly out of ties...strange really.

rickrackruby this design is gorgeous. It's fashionable enough to  use as a semi formal evening bag too!
I used to make bags out of jeans and use ties on them in different ways. I always called them my tie dyed bags as in the ties were so ugly they should be buried! People loved them. I did sell several of them at the time. But I totally love your design. Now you have me itching to start all over again! Thank you for the ispiration! But seriously I don't need more projects right now but I think if I stop working on the dress and altering the other dress and well......... I might find time!   Roll Eyes

That's a great bag and great tutorial.  One question, is stabilizer the same thing as interfacing?

Hi Grannystylee,

As far as I can tell, stabilizer is the same thing as non-fusible interfacing.  Here is a photo of the actual bolt:



Take care.
