I was inspired by this tutorial: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=52309.0
to make a woven magazine purse for a friend who is moving away (so if she was just lying when she said she liked it, I'll never know!) I ended up trying to sew the lining to the top using my sewing machine and that was a disaster, so I sort of finished it by hand and then covered up the mess with a folded strip of fabric sewn by hand to the lining on the inside and hot glued to the magazines on the outside. For all I know, it will fall apart in a week!

Two of my projects were chosen as Craftster Best of 2008! More tutorials at my blog: Stitch/Craft Creations

This looks great. I am thinking --since you went to so much trouble to make this as a going away gift-- you will stay in touch with your friend. Then you can know how well it holds together. Or take the momentum from this project to make one for yourself.

The cats know where my Sharpie went but they ain't tellin'.
