DIY or Buy Handbag Made of Old Floppy Disks

Diskette Handbag: Love It or Leave It?

Was it really so long ago that we used floppy disks? Here's a Diskette Handbag that utilizes those old and nearly-forgotten little stores of information. This geek generally prefers her bags to have the good stuff on the inside rather than the outside, but there's something a little geek chic about this, isn't there? Of course, you could also avoid paying $50 for this and DIY your own bag with old diskettes (or thrift-store finds, you know they're going nowhere there)! You'd be eco and geek chic! As for this bag, what do you think?

#1 - if I was going to get one, I'd make it myself. SO not worth $50 when I could spend $5 for the binding materials and use some of the HUNDREDS of floppies I have laying around.#2 - It'd be really uncomfortable because A) it's bulky, and B) the plastic would bang against you a lot.

I don't like the shape of the bag, but I love the idea. Maybe I'll try the DIY tips.

I will say it is a unique idea. Kinda urban looking. The key to finding out if it is hot, is to make one and sell it on ebay..........if it sells right away, make more and more $$$$, lol.
