Char from The Pickled Pepper Patch has totally inspired me to come up with my own $5 dollar craft. I needed a bag strong enough to carry loads of books back and forth. That is how the rag rug bag was born...

Terri,
Wonderful idea to make a strong bag for books. That would be a good idea for a travel frame too.
