This is the one that I stained...I used a soft brush to apply stain...the beads on the handles didn't take the stain as well b/c they had some sort of finish on them so I distressed the bag to match and used a spray clear finish on it to seal it.

I spray painted this one...much easier than staining. I decorated the top with beads and a plaster skull.
With both of these bags I opted for wire as the closer instead of elastic...I have some old telephone wire that is copper with colored coatings. I just used coordinating colors (or I would have stripped them).

Why the heck can't I see my pics?Huh

Hmm... does blogger allow hotlinking to photos?  (do they allow you to post the pictures elsewhere if they are hosted with them?)

I think they are to big...I need to figure out how to reduce them.

I don't think so, Craftster would automatically minimize them for ya, but could be!  Meanwhile, let's post the links so everyone can still see them!  Smiley

Actually the first two I made didn't work out. They are like baskets! I worked them two at a time that's why I screwed up two.. They do make cool looking baskets though.

Those are so wicked. I love the black one. And the flower on the blue on gives it a nice touch. Very good work.

I love the black one. How long did it take you to make one?

I can't really say how long it took b/c I did them at work as I had free minutes...I will say that I realized how time consuming it might be so I worked 2 at the same time. You have to let the glue set a few minutes after each row so I just kept a piece of paper to note what row I was on. I do embroidery for a living so I have free time during runs, anywhere from a minute to an hour. I just set them up in an out of the way place and added a row here and there.
