infamous photo time!
the front... the flap is the smaller end of one of the ties on red velour-type fabric. lining is a grey wool-like fabric i bought at the thrift store a long time ago... with a very puny pocket inside (no need to show that haha-- that'll hold my lighter).
the back... too bad you could see the detail better. some of the ties have weird math equation nautical stuff that say: 12/US49 and stuff w/ flags. whatever that means haha.
and my 16 yr old brother modeling it for the camera. what a ham.
this was such a fun project plus i got to use up a whole bunch of old ties and fabric. the only thing i bought was the stabilizer (i'm a fan now) and the magnetic closure (first time for that-- so easy though).
approx. $5 in materials and about a day or so to make.
yay! bookbag for life! haha
