Ok, sidvicious151 has recieved from me, so I'll post the pics I've got.  They are bad, so you might have to look really hard...
Here is the bag...black corderoy, with studs in it.  It is a basic gusseted tote shape, with a big pocket across the front, and three pockets on the inside.


Here's the indside...red/black houndstooth


for the stuff in the bag...there is a skull necklace:

a zippered pouch with an applique:

an elastic cuff with bright buttons (she likes really bright colors!):

a patch that I made with fabric paint:

and a felted soap:


and then a whole mess of treats!  there is a sticker from the company I buy studs and spikes from, some candy, a terrible joke thing that makes a really horrible stink when you open it, a growing crab, some bath bomb things, and a package of pirate kleenex:

Honestly, did you handsew that bag?  Cuz if you did, I'm gonna hate you just a little bit. Wink 

It looks great and so does all the stuff.  I thought I remembered that you made soap, but I didn't know you felted it....I'll have to keep that in mind, I'm down to my last 2 felted soaps! 

Hey, can you tell me the easiest way to make a zipped pouch, I honestly suck at it!

Great job, I hope sidvicious enjoys it!!

Ok, I cannot tell a lie (well, I mean I can, but I'm not gonna right now)  I bought the little pouch from Joanns for fifty cents.  I made the applique and the zipper pull.  I think that might be the easiest way to make a zippered pouch! Wink

The bag is all hand sewn. It took about 4 days.  the biggest pain was sewing the handles on...like 20 layers of corderoy and then the doubled lining fabric, and the interfacing. 

I just learned to felt soap from a tutorial a month or so ago...its really fun!

You did that without a machine?!  I bow to your patience.

Yeah, I do all my sewing by hand.  bags are actually fun when compared to curtains.  all those superlong straight boring seams.

WOW, you're my hero now! Handsewing is still one of my personal enemies, I'm slowly getting better, but straight seams and regular stitches are still far away.
