here are a couple of projects i have been working on. i'm thinking of selling the bags. i even have a vendor willing to sell them but i need to get my ass in gear and start producing. so, i'm looking for feedback. would you buy one? how much would you pay? they are all reversible so it's like two bags in one. any feedback is appreciated.




this project is just for fun. it's a bowl made from magazine pages. my goal is to keep adding on to it so its huge. its about 6" now. there is really no limit as to how big it can get because you can keep adding on forever. it works kinda like a camping cup. it collapses into a disk then you can pull the sides up to make the bowl. it's a good time waster.
