I found a rug on the clearance table at Big Lots.  $3.  It said to me, "take me home and make me into a bag!"  So I did.  When my son saw it, that's what he said.  Not quite, but it IS big. 


View of the lining.  Home decorating fabric by Valori Wells, from my local amazing fabric store.


Gives you an idea of the size!

The strap is a piece of black seatbelt webbing from a boxful of the stuff my daughter gave me for free!  So this was one cheap, as well as big, bag.

I am an apologist for the spiders.

Just treat me no differently than you would the Tarantula Queen.

boys just can't understand the importance of having a cute bag to hide your bodies in.  It's such a girl thing.  Wink

Looks awesome - I love that you saw a rug and thought...bag!

Yeah, things just talk to me that way.  My kids say I can make a bag out of anything.  Since I took the pics, I took off the Velcro and added a zipper, so I'm even happier with it!
