my coworker is leaving for college and comissioned a bag from me. she wanted a ziptop tote and said she likes sylvia plath and yellow. and this is the result:



close up of the details:







and the back detail:



i used iron-on transfer paper to put the picture and quotes on yellow textured fabric. but i absolutely hate iron-on transfers; mine always end up looking cheap and peeling. so i put a layer of vinyl over them as well. the top has a zipper and this crazy one strap thing with one part in the front and one in the back. overall i'm fairly happy with the bag. let me know what you think!

I covet this bag!  What is transfer paper?  Is it difficult to use?

I think I just passed out from the amount of awesome contained within that bag. I must make my own, though it definitely won't compare to yours. That's one lucky friend you have.

Underneath the bridge
The tarp has sprung a leak
And the animals i've trapped
Have all become my pets
And i'm living off of grass
And the drippings from the ceiling
It's okay to eat fish
'Cause they don't have any feelings
