I Made a New Bag

I found a photo on good old Pinterest for a "Japanese sling bag." It looked like a pretty simple project, so with the photo in front of me I made a pattern from a paper bag.

Using leftover fabric from pillow covers and a lampshade that I made, plus a deconstructed floral print Ralph Lauren shirt from the thrift store, this is what I made.

It's roomy and it's reversible. You can see by the wrinkled fabric that it gets a lot of use.

You loop one handle through the other to carry it. Next time I make one, I'll make the long handle a bit longer so that it could actually go over my shoulder. 

If you search "boho sling bag" or "Japanese sling bag" on Pinterest, you will see lots of variations.
