I received, sometime late last week. I couldn't find my camera, but when I do, I'll take better pictures, and Sillybowtie, if you have any, please please please post them, because these don't do it justice! Here are pictures from my phone.
I'm crating a line of bags, and these are part of it. I just took silly phrases that I say, or things I've heard, and painted them on some cotton canvas. They're lined with various cottons, and have cotton webbing straps. I'm also working on a line of Japanese insult bags, but they're not completely done, and then I have some appliqued ones. I'm only posting pictures of the front because the backs are boring and plain. Kudos to anyone who knows what the last two are about.
I'm from a beach town, so naturally, I had to come up with a beach bag pattern. It's absolutely huge! you could probably fit a small child in there. It would also be great for going to the market, or library, but this fabric just screams BEACH to me.
The front and back are identical, aside from the print.
Here, you can get an idea of how the handles work. It's basically the upholstery piping cord tightly wrapped with fabric threaded through a casing.
Brought it home and looked at it, and can't figure out how to attach the part that locks in! It only has a large hole in the middle. The back part attaches like a magnetic snap with some prongs and a metal back piece.
Does anyone know how to attach this?? I've googled like crazy and can't seem to find an answer!
