Or maybe I'm just tooting my own horn on that one.  This one turned out incredibly well.  I always find that when I'm making a bag I always run into a problem here or there but this one went along really smoothly!  Hooray hooray hooray.  It features my latest idea for bags -- the cellphone pocket.  Since I love using big bags I always end up digging through to find my cellphone or keys.  I attached a hanging pocket close to the top of the bag to rectify this problem.

Wow it's so beautiful! I love the fabric! And the colors! *_______*
It's really well done! XD
hahaha xD I also know the cellphone-nightmare, when it's ringing and you don't find it in your bag. That's why I put it in my pants or skirt pocket, which is always soo ugly because I have a biiiig cellphone xDDD (but I love him anyway)
So your cellphone pocket is a great idea ^^

I think that is gorgeous. The fabric is so pretty and summery, the piping is impressive, and I love your Sam Made tag. Is it a stamp?

I used an iron on transfer from my computer/printer.  It's how I usually make my tags (Thanks to this tutorial! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=40044.0)

This was my first try using piping.  I was happy with how it turned out -- try using a zipper foot to get close to the piping if you haven't already.

When I originally signed up on etsy there's spot to right a message to appear under your avatar.  The default message always said "I'm a llama!"
