I made a bag.

"Bee Happy!"

And the back.
This is one I started oh-so-long-ago. In fact, I can't quite believe that I have finished it! It stayed fairly true to the original design with just a change to the handles. Yep, they are purchased handles. I like the look of them, and they only cost me a dollar. I have taken a new interest in bags in thrift shops, (these ones came from the Salvos) checking them out purely for their handle value!

It's lovely! Clever you to use purchased handles from the thrift shop. I'll admit it, I also eye up bags at the thrift shops for repurposing ideas. ;o)

Very clever and ooh, I love those strip bags. I actually have a couple that my sisters have given me. Very handy carry-alls! Not long now till Christmas - Wishing you all a blessed Christmas and Safe and Happy New Year.

Cheers - Joolz
