In many crafts circles, artists like to work with recycled materials instead of buying new stuff. Check out such an item, the Recycled Rice Bag which is made into a neat purse from a 10lb basmati rice bag, scrap fabrics, ribbon, piping, an old tee for the strap, spray-on sealer, and recycled sequins. Read the comments section for more great recycled craft ideas.
This bag is uniformly excellent.
