Ok,, here's my first go at it! I just made a gusseted drawstrig bag and used the magazine strips as the base.  It's only 8 strips by 8 strips but with the "bag" E6000ed inside it's actally a good sized purse.  I christen this "Girl Gamer" as I used the pages from a Gameinformer magazine.  I've been looking for the perfect use for this girly camo fabric that I've had for ages.  The drawstring thing eliminates the need to invest in handles.  I'm so friggin' cheap!

Did you still use 20 magazine strips like you did in the original tutorial?

wow i just counted (handnt yet) and it is 21 strips ( 8 on each side and 4 on the bottom) and 4 strips wide as well..... the strips are wider this time though so the purse is about 12x4x8

i hope that answers your question!

OH OH OH,,, everybody look!!!  I won't post the pic,, just the link, it's kinda big,, but I made another one and I LOVE this one!   I used a sparkly denim and I double lined it.  I also used seam binding around the top and it really made it look finished (just good old hot glue btw)  I also rigged up some handles!  ENJOY!

And I forgot to add, I used a National Geographic Kids mag..  It had such COOL pictures on every page.  I was able to work in lots of penguin pictures (my fav)  I've got a party to go to tonight and I'm totally carrying my new purse!

It looks really great. Are the handles leather? I like them. How did you attach them to the bag?
