You take plastic bags and melt to paper (I used freezer paper) but you can use paper bags if you have them. I took 3 bags a white with yellow lettering, A black one, and a yellow with green lettering. I melted them to the freezer . It made enough for 2 bags. I lined it with a batik and used iron on fusible fleece between. Then I quilted it with variegated thread. I then sprayed it with a clear paint I got on a sale table a long time ago. Trimmed it, folded it, and stitched it up. Added a big bead and a pony tail elastic for a closer. It was kind of fun and it didn't take long to do.
