Me, too! It's not very expensive - about $3 here.
BTW, I saw fantastic bamboo placemats at the dollar store today.

There is a Dollar Tree here near my work. They had the regular bamboo ones, and some that are large whole bamboo rods, very cool. Oh, and if you wanted to add a matching wallet - check out the drink coaster area. There were bamboo mats trimed with red twill tape. Just whip a seam around three sides and add a bit of velcro. Bada-Bing!

I made this last year for the dollar store challenge.

after I had pieced the fabric into the shape of the bag I had to handstitch it to the bamboo mat. Just use a thread that matches the bamboo.
The one at cost plus looks like you might need a hard bottom to get the shape you want.
good luck and I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Hey,
Couldn't quite tell from the picture, is the bag made of the sushi mat things?  Or is it more of a place mat?  Looks great, either way!

Er, would the fabric be sewn onto the thread that attaches the bamboo sticks together? Then through the ends (i.e. the top pieces of bamboo)?

I don't know either, I'm just guessing.

you are right serialdeviant

I just seen this purse on Saturday at Cost Plus - it is whip stitched to the existing stitching that holds the mat together.

Helen T : its more of a place mat, but a sushi mat could work the same way.

I would love to make this bag too but I can't seem to find the placemats.  Any suggestions as to where I might find any?  Been to Wal-Mart and Dollar Tree so far.
