I love making these bags and they sell really well at the craft shows.
The first bag is made from a great movie ad from a 1949 Time Life Magazine and the rest are from a Rolling Stone and a NYLON mag.

The straps are just plastic tubing that I got at a local hardware store, I use to use ball chain but the tubing is way cheeperand I laminated them with contact paper.

I had one that was Andy Warhol themed and it sold really fast. It was sad cuz I kinda wanted to keep it for myself. Oh well it made someone else happy.

Would you care to share a bit more on how you made them?  Did you laminate and then sew together?  Is there a lining?

 Cool
