Here's a bag I made for my friend's bday this Sunday. I don't know if I'll be able to wait that long to give it to her. She loves loves loves firefly (the old tv show). I made everything except the strap, which I purchased at Michael's.
Here is the bag:
And some CUs of the pins I made. They're resin pendents of the Serenity logo wrapped in felt and beads (used this tut http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=255127.0
) I added one more pin to the front after I took the pictures.
Her favorite quote on the back as an extra pocket. I ironed the material onto freezer paper and then put it through my inkjet printer. I used Papyrus font as that is the font they used for the Serenity movie poster.
And when you open flap:
A look at the inside, lots of pockets for credit cards and license, with bonus naked picture of captain tightpants.
A good look at the cell phone pocket. Not sure if this was the best spot for it, but it's where the material wanted me to put it.
I just sort of cut and sewed, so there's no pattern. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
