Hey everyone. I made this bag out of one of my mom's old bedsheets.  I don't really have a tutorial, but if anyone wants I could make one.

That looks really cute.  Its a decent size too, coz you know that us girls like to have the world and our kitchen sink in our bags when we are going out for the day!!  It would be lovely in a black velvet or satin too...with sparkly bits..(I love sparkles!!)
Great work, happy xmas!

Thanks so much. I didn't have any fabric so I stole my mom's old sheet. Satin sounds soo nice and rich. Mine is kind of flimsy Sad

It's funny cause I didn't even make him. He was just like hey...need a model. I'm sure he was joking but I went along with it anyway. Thanks for all the comments.

I'm loving the old sheet fabric.. my family got rid of a lot of old sheets a few years back (guess who got them X3). In my humble opinion really old bedding fabric makes fantastic armbags Smiley

Ya know, I never really thought of doing this, since I'm not big on sewing, but this would work wonderfully with all kinds of sheets that have been stained, torn, etc.  Thanks for the inspiration!

It's really pretty, and what a sweet dad!
Bed sheets make great fabric, there's so much of it!
