Hello you all!!!

I want to show you a bag I've sewn some months ago Smiley I LOVE IT! "self-praise is no praise at all" - PAH!!



Windy actionshot Smiley had a hard time not to be blown away!


Details: Checkered fabric, black on the inside, black zipper! The checkered one has some light green stripes on it, not sure if you can tell from the pictures. I have sewn on some green piping for giving some shape. The applications are fake leather (green, white, black). The cassette is drawn by hand,  i have used a black edding which wasn't the best choice Wink. I've interfaced each part of the bag with some thick padded "vlieseline", for the front and back part i used some strange thick material (i really don't know what it should be used for normally).

I took me several days to finish and definitely it was a pain in the *ss some times!!!

I hope you like it! Tell me any thoughts or questions, i really would appreciate!

What a nice morning seeing all your compliments Wink THANK YOU ALL!!!!! I appreciate all your comments!

WOW
That is quite pretty
On the green circle part of the bag was the fabric all ready lined or did you sew like that
I cant really tell

When i've sewn on the applications all parts were interfaced, the front and the back with this extremely thick stuff. But the bag wasn't sewn together! It is easier to sew applications at first! The last step was sewing in the black lining - no pics of that. It has a zippered large pocket and some sewn pockets inside. Hope i have answered your question?

Haha i hope she will get you one, sewing is awesome Wink but i wouldn't start with an project like that, can be frustrating! You would also need an extra sewingfoot for leather and thick material Smiley

Kay, so I pretty much love this bag. There was one on eBay that looked like that...well not at all actually. It looked like a giant casette tape, and the the strap looked like the tape part of it. It was made out of plastic and was a giant tote, I meant to buy it but the auction ended when I was at school *sad* T_T. I know, the violins are playing.
Anyway. The bag is awesome, all of your items are awesome. You should be famous. Love it.

I'm pretty sure you can do this cassette bag. That would make the violins stop playing too!

thanks a lot! well, i didn't follow a pattern or tutorial. Of course i've made some notes and patterns at the beginning to follow, but generally it was a trial and error process mixed with a lot of sewing experience (i've graduated in fashion school).

Awesome! It has me wanting to go watch old reruns of the Fresh Prince now...
