I made this bag several years ago. It was my first sewing project. (I totally taught myself to sew!) Of course, it wasn't too hard, because it's all straight stitching.
My mom had this vintage dress from when she was in high school; back in the 50s. When I saw it, I knew I had to have it. Since it wasn't my size I decided to make something out of it. The only "new" part of the bag is The Clash patch, which my wife bought from Hot Topic (I do my best not to shop there...or go within 100 feet of the mall if I can help it)
Anyway, my first sewing project. Not a great job, but definitely my favorite bag.
