My son Aaron is always buying mags to go with the games he plays!He is also an avid reader of GamesMaster and buys a copy every month!He keeps them for about a year then gives them to me....to make paper-beads,magazine bowels and anything else I can think of to keep up with my paper addiction!I really hate putting them in the recycle bin out-side!So here is a MagBag I made!
I made some really long strips (the kind for candy bracelets, on this site) and sewed them together!(Boy was that hard!)Holes everywhere!But I carried on...and on ...and on.It took me about a week to make enough to get the right depth for the bag!It was a subistute for knitting (I made about 2 a night, cos I have other stuff to do besides my crafty stuff...you know,washing...cleaning..dog walking...shopping!!!
I looked in my sewing box and found some strapping (from another thing I recycled)then using my Crop-a-Dile hole punch (which goes though all kinds of stuff and has a long reach) I made some handles.
To give it extra strengh I lined it with duck tape.
I really hate throwing stuff away....one day they maybe so useful again!These were...not only were they cheap and chearful I now have a very stylish bag!
