Here is my Christmas version of Nester's Ragamuffin Bag. I had leftover strips of fabric from last year when I made the Ragamuffin Garland for Christmas. I love it, totally raggy, fun and different. Only needed a little time on a Saturday afternoon and some hot glue. I was in the process of making a Halloween one when I sliced my finger open on Labor Day causing an ER visit and stitiches. Just like Nester suggested the purse came from the thrift store and cost me $3. It was a woven/bamboo looking, but it doesn't matter because you are going to cover it up. I used some woven black edging to cover the top. This is so easy to make and you can customize to your liking. I may continue the Halloween bag here soon, but I'm a little gun shy about my rotary cutter. Cheers!
