This was a very early bag. It's made from an old pair of jeans and some left-over fabric from my brother's down-comforter cover. It's reversible, since you never know when you'll need a little giraffe print in your wardrobe. The handles are finger-crocheted twice for thickness. The best thing about this bag is the edging. I personally whip-stitched yarn around the two sides and the two top edges with variegated yarn. It was very time consuming, but it created a beautiful finish to my previously exposed seams. Luckily the bag is only 8"x9".
