This is a bag I made for a Bright Eyes swap a while ago. The organizer (who was also my partner) flaked out, but I sent before I realized she was a total flaker, which is a bummer. I wanted to keep it really bad (and I probably could have if I'd waited a bit longer). Oh well. Maybe I'll make another one some day.
The lyrics are from Arc Of Time (Time Code). The chalk outline is stitched, the words are white fabric paint, and the bag itself is made out of felt and lined with black cotton fabric. The handle is from a stretchy shirt I found at the dump, as well as the pocket. We have a place at our dump where you can bring things you don't want anymore, like clothes, books, toys, etc. It's such a great place to find stuff to recon.
Anyway, that's the bag I made. I had just learned how to use the sewing machine, so it's one of the very few things I've ever sewn using it. I'm pretty proud of the way it came out. (:
