Recycled bag

 Here's the finished bag I have been making from recycled carrier bags . I think I must have started cutting the strips narrower as it started going in at the top so instead of being a tote bag it's now a hand bag. I had one of those eureka moments while sleeping on how to make the handle lol I hope you will all carry on recycling and putting things that would other wise be dicarded to good use as we have seen some clever ideas this last month :)
It actually measures 10" at the base and 9/12 to the top of the handle just enough pace for a purse, phone, note book , pen and lippy

Well as long as the lippy fits in that's fine with me !! I love this but how did you make it and how long did it take I want one !! I have a handbag fetish you see and this is just so unique.
