Hi there, I have just come across this tute, I love your bags! I tried making something like this, and I have found that you can sew fabric lining on the sewing machine if the paper isn't too thick. Also, if you weave the paper and then cover it in sticky-back plastic (the stuff you used to cover books when you were little), it saves a lot of time, and means that the paper layer is thinner, so the machine can handle it.

I hope you don't think I am being rude, I was just so excited when I found I could stitch paper!!

My first post here.  I love this site and it is highly addictive.  I am a wannabe Crafter but have so many old rag mags I had to try this.  My sewing skills are horrible but I want to get better.

I will try to rack up 10 posts to show my pics of this project....

OK, got to ten posts and I am displaying my completed projects all over the place.  Sorry!  Wink

Here is a small Rag Mag Bag with grosgrain ribbon



Here is a large version with store bought handles



Lining



A couple things I need to try to make this more sturdy:  Don't fold over the tops of the vertical strips.  It makes it too thick to sew through.  I want to be able to sew through the top because my lining wants to fall away from the shell using the two-sided, really gooey tape.  Not sure how else to give it a nicer finished (and more durable) look. 

Anyone else find a better way to make the lining fit more permanently in the shell?

Those look great! I like the handles you used.

I used some extra tacky double sided tape on mine and it's worked well for a long time. However, for no apparent reason one of my handles broke, so I haven't used mine forever. I will have to remove the lining, rip out the seams holding the broken handles, and re-sew everything. Not sure that's going to happen.  Tongue

The adhesive I used is like the gooey stuff on the back of your credit card when you get a new one in the mail.  It isn't quite strong enough.  During the DAYS I spent reading this thread Smiley I saw the store you link to no longer sells it so I am not sure if it is similar to what I use.  Have you found it elsewhere?

Thanks!!

Believe it or not, I still have some left from my original roll. I did an internet search, though, and it looks like you can get it here. It's great tape.
