We bought a newer vehicle, and as nicely done up as it was, we din't want to ride around without floor mats. So, I ran inside and grabbed a couple pieces of Denim. They did okay until we got regular floor mats.

After their vehicle adventure, they were quite dirty. I washed them and had already made the plan to make them into a Tote bag. I think it's about the size of "The Jordy Bag" (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=32204.0)



Which is similar to the one I carry my shopping bags in.

As I was pawing through the "fabric pile" looking for some webbing for the handles, I discovered some faux suede. I decided it might look nice on the bottom.  But, not too high up. (And, I did find the handle webbing)

So, assembling all the pieces, and planning it as I went was challenging, but I managed.

I think it turned out really good.




Because I wanted to use just the denim pieces, I ended up with a black interior, but, I can deal with it.


So, what do you think, Craftsters & guests?

 Nice bag. I like the suede touch at the bottom.
