I made these bag a while ago. I love making up my own designs for my Carpet Bags. I have an Reliable MSK 1541S walking foot machine. It will sew through the carpets so easy, that way I can add leather to a bag with no problems. I love to try sewing just about anything that will fit in the machine. That way I can make one of a kind bags. Looking for different carpets to sew is fun, the bags can look so different by how you sew the a carpet together.
The smaller carpet bag at the bottom I added leather handles to it, I used that one for my purse last fall. I wish I would have picked up more of those carpets as the color was so nice and bright. It was a prefect size to carry around, not so big that you filled it with too much stuff.
