I was excited about this challenge, and put a bunch of work into it, so I hope you a all like it!
I was inspired by the fantastic Elton John, and this bag has a stencil on it that I made of the great Elton just for it! yay!
And I do realize Elton John doesn't commonly equal environmentalism, however I've always really really wanted a bag with Elton on it.

Here is the detail of the finished product.

Side detail of the bag.

Showing how much the bag holds. (Actually can hold more, but that's all I bought. Cheesy)

Sadly I didn't have batteries during the making of, but as a meger substitute I have pictures of my drawing, and of the stencil I then made.

This is the picture that I loosely based my stencil off of.

And well, that's all. It's splendidly imperfect, and not bad for being maybe the 4th or 5th thing I've ever sewn, and my first stencil if I do say so myself. Cheesy
(And I'm sorry for the poor pictures, but I have zero picture taking skills.)
