I was going through some older photos of stuff I've made, and I found this, and just had to share!
This was the first bag I made and still one of my favorites. I made it for my girlfriend the first Christmas we were dating. The shell is made mostly of antique and salvaged materials that I got at yard sales and other random places, as are all the findings. The inside fabric I just bought at a store. The strap is made of a seatbelt I salvaged from my uncle's junkyard.
The back, with two zippered pockets:
One of the sides with some stacked pockets:
Front pocket with flap detail...I have no idea why i did it this way...
Up close and personal with the monkey embroidery...
The GF posing and being cute...yes, I made her pose...
At this point in the bags life it has been so used that it is literally falling apart...she used it almost every day for like 2 or 3 years!
Just thought I'd share some history....Thoughts?
