Awesome bag!  I really like the green.  I'm finding it hilarious over here, because my school just finished that show!  I like your guys costumes better though...  Smiley

Oh.  My.  God.  I have that EXACT same ugly fabric at home.  I have it under my real curtains to help block out the light.

i saw this post on thread banger.
i would've replied if i had any idea on how to use the forums there.
:/

anywayyy
it's a really neat bag.
i like how to the fabrics clash.. but then go together in a really ugly(but cool) way.
if that made any sense.

Our school did this two years ago (wow, it was that long ago?!) and I can't believe the contrast in sets.  Lovely job with the bag.  It's a shame to let things like that go to waste (our theater program is student-run, so we have no budget, so we never throw anything away).

I swear I used to have a couch made of that EXACT fabric. Freaky.

Anywho. Don't you just LOVE theatre scavenges?! Basically 75% of my wardrobe and 90% of my fabric is stuff the theatre was just going to toss out.

Those curtains were grotesque. Not a good style or fabric for Earnest in my opinion. Then again, I'm my college's resident period purist. My poor directors didn't know what they got themselves into, letting a history geek design their sets.... Tongue [/tangent]

The fabric looks much nicer in it's current incarnation. ^_^
