I had every intention of not procrastinating on this one...but here i am posting at midnight...:-P


Anyways, I started with an old khaki skirt and some random fabric remnants (including some super 80's heart fabric).



I used the waistband from the skirt for the handles. I reattached the belt loops to give myself a place to keep my keys. Also has a pocket to hold my wallet, ipod, coupons, grocery list, etc. made from blue netting and bias tape.



it holds lots of goodies and is strong enough for a bag full of cans.



I chose the 80's fabric to match the Barbie theme.


Close up of the stenciling. btw, this is my first attempt at stencilling. i tried the freezer paper method i've read about on craftster...totally did not work for me...oh well i did the best i could with it...maybe it'll go better next time.



Once I find my old Barbie collection, I'm gonna make a matching keychain out of barbie shoes, hats, boots, etc. (i'll post it when i do make it)
EDIT:
So i found my old Barbie stuff! I made a pin out of a little bag.

And a keychain of mismatched Barbie shoes


they add a little color to the bag


Lemme know what you think!


(sorry bout the pics guys! should be fixed now)

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

First, love the slogan.
Second, the shoes key chain just totally makes the bag.

Great job, really great job!
