I saw this "Emily the strange amp bag" on ebay and since I thought it was very expensive and I still had this silver netfabric I had no idea what to do with I just invented my own version.
I bought black fake leather fabric which turned out dark blue under sunlight and made my own pattern.
The switch in the upper right corner is dismantled from a broken sewing machine and glued on with an enormous amount of hot glue that dropped on my knee and left a 2 inch diameter scar.
The buttons are made of shrink plastic and attached with rivets from the DIY store and moveable

The silver stuff is made from a net fabric and the dots around the buttons and the red lining around the switch are painted with acrylic paint.
The silver stuff is made from a car sun shield

It's a little bit crooked but I just don't care.

This is amazing!  My favorite part is the moving knobs.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

The net fabric is so cool! And the little knobs and such at the top look kinda' like eyes.
