yes i tried this and it works perfectly!

sadly i don't have a camera, but i've tried to draw out what i mean - let me know if it is still confusing...oh and also i've never put a picture on here before, so i hope this works!

So the dotted lines show where you have folded to form the bottom of the bag. You can also see that there is one strip folded in on each long side. Now, you have to take the red edge and make it meet the blue line by folding where the diagonal line is. You need to do this twice, one on each side of the centre line of the bottom of the bag.

Does this make sense?

wow what a great idea! i've been holed up in my room for the past few hours trying this out.

I have an idea for the sides so that you won't need the extra strip, so i'll try and explain without it sounding too confusing Huh

1. fold in one strip on each long side of your woven mat
2. fold the bag so that there are 2 woven strips that will make the bottom of the bag, so it basically looks like a bag but the sides still aren't done.They're folded in but there are no sides if you follow
3. ok this is where it's hard to describe. On the inside of your bag, right up close to one edge of the bottom, pick up the 1 strip 'seam' that you've made, and fold a triangle from the centre of the bottom to the inside edge of the bag. When you do this, the side should stand up straight so you should see more clearly what you're doing
4. repeat from the centre fold to the other inside edge of the bag on the same side.
5.the two edges should meet perfectly along the side of the bag
6. repeat for the other side

does this make sense?! lol
hope so.

thanks so much for the great idea!  Grin

Anyway I just wanted to say that if you go on ebay (well, at least the UK one) you can look up 'coloured CDs' and buy mix packs of all different coloured cds - red, orange, purple blue...just thought you might all like to know...more experiments...woohoo Cheesy
