::This is a really long post...sorry
Well, I got some money for my birthday (last month) and I knew that I wanted to get some nice material because I'm really in need of a new bag. So I drew up a plan from an idea I had in my head (not that thats hard...and yeah I call it a plan..not pattern...plan.:-d
anyway, what I ended up with was a kinda simple messenger bag.
I wanted similar to the first one I made just this time with a zip and I wanted the strap a little shorter...
this is what I ended up with.
Okay and I would normally show you a photo of the inside, but seeing as even when I'm just trying to get into the bag I get lost...yeah...taking a photo seemed impossible. Inside I have pockets for my cellphone and mp3 player, I have a secret pouch, a pouch for my umbrella, a thingie to put tissues in (that was a job and a half!) a D-ring to attach my keys to, and 2 more x-tra pockets.
Under the flap: a pouch for my pen and one for paper.
And last but not least I have a pocket thing for a bottle of sorts (cola or something)
It has a magnetic button thing, snap buttons, and 2 zips.oh, and the material is a black-ish denim and a red cotton(I think) but in certain light it comes up as a burgundy colour.
Oh, the image I drew (its not magnificent but I like it) and I painted it on with fabric paint.
okay...well that bag ended up being even bigger than the previous one..so much that my father bet that he could put his laptop in there...I tested his theory...I fits, with lots of space..if you didn't know better you wouldn't even know that there was a laptop in the bag!
So thats how we come to the second bag (By now this post looks really long...I'm sorry its just that I haven't posted clothing items in a while.
For my second bag I got inspiration from a bag I saw at Hot Topic and I wanted to try and recreate it. This was a desperate attempt to make a bag from the material that I would actually use...anyhow this is what I ended up with
The image on the outside I actually saw on BME it is someones tattoo, and I honestly think it looks really beautiful and so I decided it HAD to go onto my new bag
::If this is your tattoo let me know I will give you full credit or if you don't want me to post it then I will remove the images::
This one is a really simple bag it has snap buttons and a cellphone pocket on the inside.Oh, and as can tell its from the same material.
Well I think that was a long enough post ...again sorry...
but..um..let me know what you think. I still have about a meter and a half of each fabric, if you have any ideas of what I could make next.
This is what else I've made with the material so far:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=176924.0
