I used fabric that can be seen here and here:

I used the scraps from those two projects to make this:

You can see that it is pieced together from scraps but in an awesome way, it looks great!
 I used vintage handles from my grandmother's stash.  I even lined it and put little pockets for my phone and wallet.
I like the way it turned out and it is nice when nothing goes to waste.
