I've seen lots of Rent related items here, but I've hardly seen anything Wicked related, so I'm posting my tote bag. Basically, I'd never used our sewing machine before, but I wanted to learn. I thought a tote bag was the easiest thing to make that was practical as well for my first time, and since I was going to the national tour or Wicked at the end of the week (I just got back, it was great) I thought I'd make it Wicked themed. The pictures are a little big; my apologies. Here it is:
Sewn with black duck canvas, painted with acrylic paints mixed with fabric medium.
A close up of Glinda
And the inside, sort of a lime suede.
These pictures don't really show the color very well though. For instance, Elphaba's lips on the bag are actually sort of a bright red on the bottom and a light coat of the red at the top like they're supposed to be. You just can't tell
I actually found fabric of the exact same shade of green as on the real Wicked picture at Hobby Lobby, and I found the perfect green paint at Walmart. They just look sort of dull and weird on the pictures.
I made it based on the Wicked logo/poster/cover picture:http://www.bestshowticketslasvegas.com/images/wicked1.jpghttp://images.amazon.com/images/P/B0000TB01Y.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpg
Anyway, that's it.
