1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Wild Bird Bag! on: April 10, 2008 10:18:30 PM
Hello craftster! This will be the first project I post on this board!

I just got a new job down the street from my house and I needed to make a tote bag to carry my "home clothes" in so I can change at work and go out from there (I got the job close to home just so I could have that option) and I really like the bag! I'm not too proud of the craftsmanship but I am really proud of the cuteness!

I originally was going to make a black canvas tote bag, however the fabric store I went to did not have black canvas (and my dye attempt went downhill), but they DID have black corduroy, so I went with that! I was also going to make a large leopard print pocket in the front, but I decided to go with something more simple...

The leopard print bird on the front was inspired by the fabric I bought for the liner which I HAD TO BUY because it was so cute!

Here is a detail of the liner fabric (I love it so much!):

I love how the bird came out! I wanted the bird to be a little "rough around the edges." Most of the people who have seen the bag say the bird doesn't look like a bird and that it looks like a seahorse... I might have to give him feet!

Thanks craftser!
