my slash bag

I saw a paper black and white slash pattern shopping bag lying in our neighbor’s office( I took the picture through their glass).  So bold and so cool, I immediately like to make one out of fabric.  Remember seeing stripe fabric at IKEA, I use that with leather handles and green cotton lining.  My stripe pattern is not as big as cool as the original also The proportion of the paper bag is better.  To stable the big bottom of the bag is tricky since it might make the bag look to boxy.  I put thick felt underneath the lining, I still didn’t get it quite right.  I use invisible threads for the top stitch of the bag opening since white threads will look bad on black and vice-versa for the black.
