This is the most boring bag I've ever made.
I was looking around at a store called "all for less". Has a great variety of items. One section is bedding and the like. I found in their Sale Bin a King Sized Bed-skirt. I've never used one, and have a smaller bed. It was an attractive item, and I thought it would make some nice looking bags.
I found out immediately that the skirt part wasn't very long.  Tongue I suppose I ought have known that, but it was shorter than I was expecting. I also discovered that it wasn't a very thick fabric -- nor very quality, either. (The cheapest no-tell motel has more expensive sheets than this material.) It is strictly for appearance.

So, I used some of it for another bags' lining. Then decided I'd try  to make one of these. I had the notion I might get 3 or 4 of these out of the bedskirt part. Now that this one is done, I might get another lining out of it -- maybe.

It prob'ly would have been attractive as a bed-skirt. But, I don't think it makes a very good bag. It will carry whatever I put into it, certainly. I lined it with a plain white nylon. But, it's the simplest bag I've ever made. The photo doesn't show it very well, but the colour is Navy.

Maybe it's not a very exciting bag but I do like functional sacks that can eliminate plastic so it's got it's charm, right?

I agree!
I did use it today, in a grocery-shop. It functioned very well. It did carry what I put into it.
(It astounds me the extreme number of plastic bags that still go out the door of a grocery store. People still believe they're "free")
