first i screen printed the fabric (which was all done by me by hand) I used a simple tote pattern that i got in a vintage pattern lot. it's two side pieces, a bottom piece that is for looks and support but doesn't add to the size of the bag, it just wraps around the bottom. and a simple patch pocket. I couldn't find a decent bag for my oversized laptop so i made this, it fits perfectly inside. I used   a thick cotton weave so it has some natural padding. (it's thick like denim but soft) sorry i don't have more pics. i also made one with a gold misfits skull print!  the print on this one is a skull with an arrow through it, it looks much cleaner in person. you can see the detail
