I'm very impressed. It looks incredibly professional. Making my own bag patterns gives me a giant headache and probably costs me a lot of time in the end.

This is quite possibly the greatest bag/wallet combo I have ever seen! Are there any pockets or anything inside? Any chance we can see the inside? Even the controller cell phone holder is fantastic. I would buy something like this in a heartbeat.

The inside is completely lame. I didn't even line it.. I got ahead of myself and sewed stuff in the wrong order, and with vinyl you can't unpick it and redo because there are holes. So I decided I will make the lining separate and sew it in by hand. There are no pockets inside but on the front you can see one fully lined pocket that is set in.

I appreciate the comments everyone. Smiley

That is wonderful that you have such a good friend. As for the bag I love your choice in fabrics and the bag itself reflects good planning and technique. It looks fantastic.

I LOVE the front applique and the colors you selected. It is gorgeous!

It is fantastic. I love the adjusting dividers inside. It looks sturdy and your stitching is very precise.

Thanks! I was going to be more ambitious and make the cartridge door open, and hold the wallet, and etc but in the end this fabric is terrible to deal with so I ended up cutting some of the details of the bag out of the plan.

All made of fabric backed upholstery vinyl which is a little beastly to work with.
Featuring CONTROLLER zippered cell-phone size case and CARTRIDGE WALLET.



With nonsensical "BIKE" logo even though those are clearly rollerblades! Oh well. Also you may notice there are a bunch of loyalty card slots but no place to really put cash. That is because I don't have any!

These are so amazing! How did you cut out the applique pieces so exactly? They're tiny and brilliantly done. Smiley (THIS ROCKS)

I plan what I am going to make on the computer and then print it out, backwards if I remember to.

Then take a sheet or roll of Sulky Sticky, to which I am now forever indebted. This stuff: http://www.createforless.com/Sulky+Sticky+Stabilizer+Package+7.5x+9+12+pc+White/pid31862.aspx?utm_source=googlebase&utm_medium=cse

It has a paper side that peels off, and a stabilizer side that feels like any normal interfacing. Put paper side down, on my printed sheet, and trace off one color's design.

Then peel off paper, stick to fabric's wrong side. The sticky serves 4 functions now:
*It provides an outline to cut your appliques along.
*It keeps your fabric from fraying.
*It keeps your fabric stiff, which is easier to cut.
*It has a texture that helps position appliques without them sliding all around.
