I love the purse!  You did a great job on it.  I hope I can find that fabric.  My Wal-mart quit carrying fabric, so I will have to travel to find it. 
Do you/would you make them to sell?

I found them on line here,
http://www.sykelenterprises.com/licensed_fleece.asp?browse=13
but they do not sell to individuals and I could only find the fleece on the site

BUT...

Found it at walmart ladies. It was 4.44 a yard.

I considered it but while looking for the manufactures website I found MANY articles that say this company WILL prosecute if the material is used to sell .... crazy I know but It had me intimidated!

i am doing research now, but from what i see, they will ATTEMPT to prosecute...but they cant, because THEY dont hold the actual rights to the images...

now i want to know the real laws behind second and third party image selling in the fabric biz....everyone is scared of it, but i dont think its as cut and dry as it seems....

This is an awesome bag and has some completely awesome fabric!  Thanks so much for sharing all the info with us!

Edit: 17 Nov 07
This ebay auction has this fabric (I just did a quick ebay search for you all to see if there was some.)  It's $11.00 for the yard, so I'd check your local Wal-Mart first!

$11.00! OUCH!!! That one has Dalmations too, I think they take away from the other squares. (just my opinion though)

In other news I couldnt wait to hear her reaction so instead of waiting till she got it in the mail I sent her pictures while on the phone with her!! heehee! She loves it YIPPIE!  Grin
