1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Fish and turtle bags/clutches on: January 22, 2010 11:41:57 AM
So after lurking for about 2 years, I'm finally making my first post and sharing some of the results of of all the inspiration I've gathered from you lovely folks!

I made these little guys for two of my friends for Xmas last year- there were a few animal-based bags that were featured awhile back (like a fish pencil case) that caught my eye, and since my friends and I are all ocean-nerds I decided on creating clutches in the shape of a sea turtle and a fish for them.

I wanted to make them big enough to be used as a clutch or small bag, so I based the bodies off of Amy Butler's Stash and Dash Bag pattern with a little modification for the fish to make it more pointy.  I added on the extra details, came up with the straps, and ta-da! I hope you like them!

these are all so amazing! I love the cross-over top of the glow-in-the-dark and moon tees. Definitely a lot of inspiration for my pile of tees I've been meaning to do something with!
