Posting spree!

These see-through bags were very popular here in 1998-1999, and I really liked the plastic thing, but I thought it unnecessary for everyone to see what's in my bag. So I made one with a jeans inside. I kinda like the inside pocket best of all, but I don't have a pic on it. I was running out of fabric, so it looks very designy with a line running across it.

I was 14 or 15 when this was made, but I still like it. The featherband I had to sow on by hand, because there's like seven layers of fabric at the edge - the top has a separate fabric bit attached, for the zipper.



The obscure design on it is a yin&yang in beads. I bought three packs of metal beads - one oily, one green and one silvery. I mixed the silvery with the other two, and then I made one half greenish, one half oilyish - sowing the area around the beads and letting them be loose inside.

The weird thing hanging out on the left side of the pic is an umbrella handle.
