I learned how to make this rag bag at a 4H workshop for leaders. It uses 1" strips of fabric and the grid used for latch hooking. The fabric strips are woven through the grid and it is assembled by tying knots with the hang off of the strips from the front and the sides.
Her new color of choice is the lime green of the handles. She loves the bag and I'm sure she will carry it for most of the summer.
These bags are really fun to put together, since they require very little thought. An easy project to work on at sporting events, in a doctor's office, or watching TV (do others really have time for this?).
