I went to a craft show a year ago and I noticed that a bunch of people were going crazy buying  earrings that someone made.  I didn't think that they were worth what she was selling them for, buy hey, she made alot of money.  They were earrings she made out of ripped up material. She ripped the material into long strips, then she painted the strips different colors and put them on a wire post/earring.  She was selling the earrings for $30 each.  People were really going crazy for them! That made me realize that people will buy anything!

i think that's the difference between crafty people and.. non-crafty people, hahah. we can look at things and sort of see how to make them, while others look at things and want them thoughtlessly

jnaos you can make any type of bag but if you want to make money, you have to save a lot on fabric. my mom uses this thing online called freecycle and she gets me free fabric all the time. like, boxes and boxes of it! hahah so usually i end up taking what i want and we give the rest to thrift. i think the only downside to freecycle is you have to pick up the items yourself. but if you're interested, just google it; it's pretty neat. good luck
