using up scraps and making bags

I have started to try and use up some of my sizable scraps by making some bags.  I was also able to use up some old belts, and 'harvested' zips.

this pattern from noodlehead is very useful and easy to follow

I made this bag from one belt and a some denim squares - I have been trying out a few other bag designs and it is a great way to use up the large scraps also to reuse one or two sewn items that didn't quite work out!  I am making a few more noodlehead bags, or variations of them as they will make very useful gifts!
