I couldn't believe it when I saw how this bag was made - just from a piece of rope! It's ingenious. Makes great beach and grocery bags. I'm making one for my mom too.

Use your basic sewing skills and some humble rope to build a fabulous bag with this easy to follow rope bag sewing tutorial. Perfect for the beach, market or picnics!
I love how sturdy and practical this bag is, I can see myself toting it to all kinds of summer events, at the beach, for picnics and barbecues and even at the market, the perfect place to carry my bread and produce. It would make a great handmade gift too!
The colors in this example are beautifully summery.
