Absolutely and shamelessly inspired by this bag:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=186979.msg1958906;topicseen#msg1958906

I needed one of my own.  NEEDED.  Needed.  So actually the night after I saw the original I went nuts, grabbing Target bags and my iron and making this version in, like, two hours.  I loved it, but it was missing something.  It didn't look finished.
I wanted piping, but I couldn't find red vinyl piping anywhere in town, and I didn't know how much I needed so I was hesitant to order any online.  I finally settled on some neato string/yarn trim I got at Hancock for 50 cents a yard (and I needed three yards!)
And still, it needed more!  Lucky for me, I spent three years working at Target, so thusly I HAD more!  Hurray!


So now I give you, it's in final Target-dorky-form, my I Love Target Too Much bag.


The front.


The back, more of the same.


The pocket, which is now much more secure than it was in the original version.  I love this.  I'm so glad we had the older bags with the big list on it (the new bags only have small lists.)



And the dorkery side... I have four different versions of my nametag (my original with the Target pin you got after a year, which they no longer give out... no pins on any badges, they wanted uniformity); a regular nametag; a generic one with my store's number on it; and two that happily proclaimed me as a TRAINER (team trainer!  yay!)  I used the one I had duplicates of (actually, my pin one is in my scrapbook I think.)
I also had the hilarious pharmacy badge that they made us all wear for a month during a pharmacy promotion.  I love it.


I also switched the straps so they didn't cross between the bag.  It only took one shopping trip for me to realize that was stupid and wouldn't work, LOL.

That looks excellent.  It looks really sturdy too - how many layers are you fusing to get your 'fabric'?

GAH! I love this! My favorite part I think is how you did the side pocket. Super placement on that! Really great! I want to make one sooo bad, but I don't have enough Target bags!

I love the original too -- the inspiration is fantastic.  You have improved on it though.  This is what I like most about craftster; standing on the shoulders of giants!

j_en, I can't remember right now, but I THINK it was four layers... it may have been five.  There's two layers of duct tape inside, and then I kind of added another layer to the bottom because I became obsessed with making the inside look good.  It's fairly sturdy but tends to fall over a lot when empty, LOL.

I love target...  but then, who doesn't love target?!?
I know, right?!  I mean c'mon!  It's TARGET!!

Thanks everybody!!  I'm excited to take it out shopping now that it's finished. =>
