Carry History SriThreads Komebukuro bag - this type of bag was made to bring small portions of dried rice of beans to a local shrine or temple during its festival time. Most are between 6 and 12 inches on a side.
To make the tote, I used 4 pair of old jeans in varying colors of denim. I cut 6 inch wide strips from the legs of the jeans. (The 8 legs yielded enough strips of denim to make 2 totes) Christie Chase: denim vacation tote
