121  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My version of the woven mag purse... Now with messenger bag pics!!!! (IMG heavy) on: August 14, 2005 01:20:50 PM
This was way fun!  Lemme know what you think of it!!  I had this huge bead catalog laying around and there was no use for it.  I saw the post about the woven magazine purse, so I decided to use it for that.  It's the first time I ever made a purse out of anything. Embarrassed

This is the front of it:



This is a top view of it:


This is kind of a side view of it:


Thanks a lot for any feedback!! Grin Smiley

I guess I have tons of extra time on my hands because I have completed my woven magazine messenger bag!!!!  I think it's awesome.  It's also made out of the bead catalog pages.  Lemme know what you think of it!:)

This is the front of it... it has a flap that hangs down the front (obviously since it's a messenger bag but I wasn't sure if you could see it or not):


This is the back... I tried to do kind of a black and white checkered type feel with the background of the pages.. I don't know if you can tell.. It's sort of hard to catch:


This is a side view.. I don't really know why it's necessary. Tongue  Just to show how wide it is, I guess:


This is it opened up:


And this is the handle up close:


Thanks in advance for any feedback!  You guys are awesome! Grin Wink

And yes I did get the jist of this magazine weaving stuff from craftin_pretty's tutorial which you can find here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45643.0
I modified it a bit but I give many thanks to her for showing me how to weave magazine pages!  THANK YOU SOO MUCH!!

Holy wow!  I love it!!!  I'm so intimidated by duct tap, though.  Undecided Embarrassed  It seems too sticky to work with.  But after seeing your purse, I'm motivated to give it a try.  I just might have to.  It's sooooo nice!!!!
