Actually, I haven't ridden a bike in probably five or so years...

Anyway, I made this bag for a silent auction my sister is planning for something charity/ jamaica mission trip/ whatever it's going for. The point is I have to give this beauty away! ack! I'm just going to have to bid on it and buy it back.

I rarely get inspired to make bags anymore, and I actually like this one - if anyone else bids on it, they'd better watch out!

Pictures!

I really like contrasting colors... as you can tell.

close up! buttons! ruffles! magic!


more of a close up!  I actually cut out this bike from some bike fabric and went over it all in black machine stitching, then with the sproles (I just made up that term) I used random colors of hand stitching.


The blue fabric was actually an old cardigan - I was excited because it changed after I ironed it (100% acrylic- if that means anything), and now it's smooth and nice.
The inside is just some black sanin-y material with a zipper pocket and a regular side pocket.
The bike fabric was actually white, and I painted it that pinkish color - now I think I would have liked white better. oh well.

enjoy!
