Love this idea. Last night I tried to make one. it came out ALRIGHT. not pretty pretty thought cuz I was figuring out HOW to do it and shape/form it as I went. I got really annoyed when I was trying to line it though. I have a TON of this black spandex like fabric that a friend gave me and tried to use that.  It works okay, but is all floppy so it doesnt cooperate too well hahaha

tonight Im going to go home and pull out the lining and try it again.

and then, im gonna do this project with newspaper pages instead of magazine pages and see how that turns out. Cheesy

This bag is being added to wish list of projects!

How did you attach the sides of the bag together? and have you though/tried to sew the lining to the outside of the bag?  I have done some application with sewing fabric onto paper products that turned out fine and wondered if you have had any luck.

And what technique did you use to prep the strands to weave, besides the tape of course?  are they double folded?

If you read through the first page or two of this thread, I think I answered most of those questions. I never did try to sew the lining in. After doing this first purse and then four more as gifts, I totally retired the project and moved on to other things.  Smiley

This is my first time on here. I love the bag and am looking forward to making it.
I read through all 15 pages to make sure my question was not already answered.
I guess it might be on the original tutorial, but I don't know how to get to it Embarrassed
So here are my questions. Did you fold the magazine page in half and then into thirds? How exactly did you cover each magazine strip with the tape?

Honestly, it's been so long since I made this, I don't remember, but I do think that's how I folded those pages. Make sure you fold the page vertically so the strip is as long as possible. I then put that folded strip down the middle of the packing tape, and folded both sides over so that the front and folded sides were completely covered and the back of the strip is where the tape "seam" ended up.

Here is my shot at the mag bag Cheesy







I think the next one I'll try will be gift wrap,cute bags for any holiday!Plus gift wrap would yield longer strips for weaving basket style!
