Navigational Chart ToteJune 10th, 2009 in member junk
My son the merchant mariner brought home all his navigational charts (which the ship's crew junks after sailing is completed) from his six months at sea. He knew that his mother would find something to do with them, aside from framing a few and hanging them as is! He even suggesting using them as wallpaper.... I finally decided to turn a few of them into a totebag-- It didn't occur to me to photograph it in construction stages but it was very simple to put together, just follow any basic totebag pattern. Because it's not much more than a modified paperbag with handles, I don't really use it to tote anything heavy but instead keep it in the family room to hold magazines. Still have quite a few charts so any ideas for more projects are welcome!
