Hey /diy/, so I have a habit of holding onto shopping bags.
You know, the good quality sturdy kind that you get from buying at stores like Victoria's Secret, American Eagle, Sephora... pic-related basically.
I've been holding onto a few from stores like Anthropologie and Desigual. I even have one from Nintendo World and another from a Sanrio event in NYC. Hell, the Desigual bag even has a velcro fastener inside to close it.
Basically, I feel like these bags are too nice to toss, but at the same time I don't want to look like some kind of bag hoarder.
Got any creative ideas as to what I could do with these bags?

Old one died a few days ago, and I need advice.
My first project, an MXR Phase 90 replica, is giving me a massive headache.
I started building it ages ago, and still haven't finished.
Basically, when the box is turned off, everything works fine. Circuit gets bypassed, signal goes out.
The problems start when I turn it on.
> turn box on
> LED turns on
> no sound
Well, I CAN make sounds with it. By touching the tip of my instrument cable (sending signal) and then tapping on the enclosure / pot / switch, I can make popping noises. Neat, right? Just not what I want.
I guess this means the signal gets shorted to ground somewhere; I just can't figure out where that happens. I have insulated pretty much 80 % of the enclosure's interior (the rest being spots where there is no possibility that the signal gets shorted). I have resoldered the entire board to make sure there are no cold solder joints, and checked all other connections with a multimeter.
Help! More pictures will follow after lunch.
