My mom and I are going to Dragon*Con this year. I decided it was a perfect excuse to make a couple bags for us to use for 4 days. Mom bought me the stuff to make hers first Cheesy
 EDIT : I loosely followed Lia's duffel tutorial : http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=7290.0;topicseen changing the strap placement (ends for easier carrying) and size (that's a 24 inch zipper, folks!). Oh, and I sewed the lining directly to the pieces. not as pretty, but easier to handle.
Excuse the pictures, but I didn't think to do this until 1am....
Closed with bonus babyhead in the corner!:


Open:


Then, I found the tute for the triangle cosmetic bag here : http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=176509.0 (Thank you so much queenofdiy!)  And decided to make a matching bag for mom. I didn't have a zipper, so I took a pair of ruined jeans, cannibalised the zipper (which was too small  Roll Eyes ) and used the leg as the lining. It's not perfect (no zipper foot...and my machine bogged down on the last side, and I didn't catch all the fabric Angry so I had to go over that later. But, it still is ok. I'll probably use this one.

Outside (which shows the canvas colour of the bags better) :


Inside (with all my crap) :


Mom wants to use a dragon stencil she found with paint, but I talked her into letting me use it with a paintbrush and bleach Wink Luckily I have scrap left to practice...I used a scrap to paint 'Mom' (was going to do that on the small bag) and it didn't bleed.

If I can, I'll update with that last picture.

Thanks again to queenofdiy, for her fantastic makeup bag tutorial, and Lia, for her duffel bag tutorial. When I have proper materials, I'll make another that will actually do justice to her tute! (Gonna make one with vinyl between the 2 layers for easy cleanup in case of burst foundation) and larger for shampoo and a toothbrush!

Shewolf, those are very nicely done!  The photos are a little dim Sad  But i can see the high quality of your work in the close up of the toiletry bag.

About how long did it take you?

Also, great cannibalisation of a pair of jeans.

Yttrai,  it didn't take too long, although I'm not sure how long. I was wrestling with the baby at the time. 2 hours from cutting to complete maybe? Not including the 30 minutes to pick out the zipper from the jeans....they don't want those coming out! Mom has her bag, and she bought some simply spray to add some dragons on the bag Cheesy. I'm thinking I'll let her do that...I'm happy with a brush, not a can.

Mienna, I hope you get to go! Looks like it's gonna be a great list!

And most importantly Wink thanks for the complements!
