Nice, attractive use for old placements.  I've got plenty of those Smiley

What a GREAT tutorial...I am the most sewing challenged person I know, but I enjoy sewing all the same...even though most of my projects end up in the trash....go figure...well...onc e I read this tut, I knew I had to try it....great directions and simple supplies...here is my finished product....and I completed it with minimal swearing....I forgot to measure the lining before sewing up the bag so I had to wing that part (hence the swearing)...not too bad for someone who can't sew...LOL...

Here's the front of the bag


Inside


The outside of the bag had such a tropical feel too it I HAD to go with the pinapple lining....now I'm off to find a bamboo clasp to use to close the bag with....I'm paronoid about pick pockets too....

Thank you so much for such a great tut not2old4glitter.... I can't wait to make more....

Thank you so much for your tut. I had pretty much given up on sewing, but this project inspired me, I went to the Dollar Tree, picked up 6 different place mats (oh yes at only $1 each) and here is what I came up with.
I used large grommets to string the handles through.


This one I used an old belt for the straps
and these ones below, I sewed but ran out of stuff to make handles with. I am going to Hobby Lobby first thing to see what I can find

 Cheesy Oh Yay I am so glad to see people using this tute and seeing what you all are making!! I like that it's a  project that is adaptable to all sewing skill levels, you can make them as simple or as complicated as you want and even the simple ones look fab.

SpookShowBaby that bag is GORGEOUS and I love that placemat!! Where did you get it? A little bamboo clasp or wooden toggle button would look great on there. Love the pineapple lining too! Makes me want to go on vacation.  Grin

And Jennickell I really like the grommet idea- I might have to try that. I think I even have some grommets in my notions box. That blue brocade paisley one looks very pretty- what kind of handles are you gonna use on it? That might even be cute with a chain handle or something metallic. It's a little more dressy fabric so something shiny or glttery would suit it. Oh there I go pushing the glitter again. Wink
Did you get the funny looks from the cashier when you bought 6 non-matching placemats? LOL

I made one for my friend as a "happy birthday and fare well in Mexico" present.  I had never made a bag before, save a couple of really simple drawstring sacks.  I had never ever made a pocket, inserted a zipper or sewn a button-hole.  I learned a lot on this project.  I'm quite proud.  However, I should have taken more time with the inside pocket I made, now that I have seen that there is a link to a tutorial on how to do it right... I just kind of made it up as I went along and it wasn't great.  I ended up going to get another placemat and I mailed my second, improved set of straps to my freind yesterday.  I hope she loves this bag --

yarnhag that turned out really cute! I like the straps being buttoned on, and that way you could also have multiple sets of straps in different lengths or colors, or mix and match straps between different bags. And YAY for learning new things like zippers! I think a lot of people are scared of them but I LOVE love love zippers and  they are really easy once you do a couple. I only wish they were cheaper because I like to put at least 3 zippers per purse.
