After watching all of my favorite 1940's movie this weekend - I was inspired to use the fabric and make a modern day glamorous verson of a rucksake. Think Huckleberry Fin with high heels and lip stick!! It was very easy to make - you can make almost any size. Figure out how big you want it - cut out 2 perfect squares.
