Strip Bags


I'm slowly, very slowly trying to use up some of my string scraps. I dug into the Barbie scraps and made this little tote bag.



Simple, simple, simple...



This Halloween one is my favorite though. I think I just love the colors and designs. For the handles I used the orange fabric from the bottom of the bag. I added a ribbon on one side of the handle to give them some strength.



I also added a ribbon around the inside rim.

I also have a couple more bags in the finishing stages. For those I used a bunch of selvages. Those are fun to work with. I'm just trying to figure out the handles. I need to get those finished soon and out of my work area.
