Jelly Roll Bag

I saw this tutorial from Man Sewing about how to make a bag using only a jelly roll. I was intrigued and decided to try it.

It took a long time to press all the strips. Easily the most time-consuming part of this project.

I opted to cover my side seams with a leftover strip. Next time I will not do this and use the extra strips in the body of the bag instead.

For this one I used 32 strips for the body, 2 strips to cover the side seams, four strips for the handle and one for the top edge. I had one strip leftover. Next time I will use, four strips for the handle and the rest for the body. I also found the 4" boxed corner recommended in the tutorial to be way too large. I used a 2.5" measurement instead.
