Yes.......I've finally posted a picture of my two square bottom purses that I've made.  I'm not finished with the black and white one yet.  I'm still adding on and increasing the size of the wrappers as I add on to make the top flare out.  I've also got to add handles.

I love your tutorial! I've always loved making purses out of different and recyclable materials for a long time! I'm very thankful for your tutorial! I hope you can post another about how to make the flat bottomed bag! I've always wondered how that's done! ♥

I want you to know that your blog is a huge help to THE WORLD. I am a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer working in El Salvador, and I am working with other volunteers to teach impoverished women here that they can recycle their potato chip bags and make these purses and other items. So I just want you to know that your instructions are helping people throughout the world. AND - the ladies here would love to know how to make those flat-bottomed bags. Thank you so much for your creativity and ingenuity!

I also loved your work. Your instructions helped me to complete a purse and a coin pouch. Can't wait to purchase your instructions on how to make the square bottom purse.

I made a purse and I get so much attention from everyone, even kids. I bought a shirt that came with extra collar stays and they are the perfect size for the needle. You can buy them at the fabric store. Just pole a hole with a hot needle, than sand it smooth. The credit card I used started to peel and made it hard to get through the purse. Thanks so much for sharing your instructions!

I am eager to learn about that flat bottom-purse!
Also, has anyone talked about whether it would be possible to use iron on vinyl before cutting pieces (instead of clear tape)?
I have yet to make a whole purse yet, still in the practice/experiment stage.
Thanks for all the info so far!!

Great tutorial ) I think we are all curious to know how to make the flat bottomed bag?! And also how to add faux leather handles and accents at the corners like the Nahui Ollin bags? x

Wonderful, I am making some as we speak, my daughter went to Mexico and brought me a change purse, well the poor Berstine Bears book, is now a change purse.....strudy paper, but I find that gift bags make good sturdy purses....im just happy I learned how to put these things together...my site is www.hhimgod.wetpaint.com ..thanks for the good instructions. I was having problems with the zipper, but after seeing what you did, i guess is was putting them in right all along.....how do you make the square bottom purse....just wonderful
