Old bicycle inner tubes are a fun and durable material that can be used to create lots of cool items once you know how to work with this material. This example shows you how to make a simple and stylish bag.

For this project I used 3 inner tubes for the bag and one for the handle.

Step 1: Cut the Inner Tubes

Cut the inner tubes horizontally creating a long strip.
Next cut the inner tube vertically (as shown below). 
Most inner tubes you will find have a line pattern that you can follow for a straight cut.
