First, I want to say that there is SO MUCH talent on this forum.
I'm a lurker and poster in the sewing community, but I never came there until now ; and I'm so impressed by all your work. You guys are amazing. Wink

Now, for my drawing :

First drawing in 3 months! ♥
Turned out so much better than I thought it would. I'm so happy with it!

Annabelle is one of my main OC. She's inocent, very sweet and wear mostly Lolita clothing. She works in a toy shop, and can't understand why people are mean in general. Very naive and kinda cry-baby girl ~ The kind of person that would burst out crying in front of a suffering animal and do the best to help it, even if it's dangerous. But she's so lovely!

Done without a tablet. 100% mouse and Pen Tool.
Paint Shop Pro 8

About 8 hours ~

What are your thoughts on it? What should I improve?

Thank you all, you're so kind ;___;

Carmen, thank you for telling me the real name for this material!
ShannyAnn, it was indeed a lot of cussing.
Polly Peanut, this is so kind! I bet they'll end up even better.

I like it a lot, and I don't think anyone will ever notice the "many small mistakes."  In fact, I think they would be surprised it was homemade!
Thank you all for your comments! Smiley

You're right, it seems that many people can't believe I actually did it ; a bit frustrating, but quite flattering at the same time Tongue

Yeah, making things homemade is really a big deal nearly all the time! ♥

I love the big bow, but I would have made it red.
Love the bag.
How did the piping turn out? (with working with it?)
Much, much easier than I thought it would!
I pinned it between my two fabric pieces, right sides together, and sewn by following the bump with my finger so I would sew it right in place. Kinda hard to explain, if you want some drawings, I could give you some in a few hours or so Tongue

Wheee! It's finally done and fully functional! ^0^
Now, for the story :

I was browsing a Lolita brand website, Angelic Pretty (Link) when I saw their bags. OH MY GOD. So so lovely. And so pricey; over 100$ US each. ;0;
So why not make my own inspired by all my favourite bag? I so did.
I drafted my own pattern, took 1 meter of kind of fake/cheap leather-like fabric, 1 meter of lining (see here), a zipper and some white piping I had laying around, and I was set.

After many, many hours of work, I was done.  Cheesy
Working with that fabric is a bit of a pain, since you can't sew it twice at the same place, or there will be too many holes and it will simply fall apart. There's many little mistakes, it doesn't stand well on it's own, but once you put stuff in it, it's alright. I choose to put a single strap from a side to another, personal preference.

Overall, I'm very happy with the result, and I can't make to do a red or white one next. And this bag cost me only 15$. Smiley

What do you think about it?  Wink
