I made this bag for my sister for her birthday.  I put pictures of our cats on it using inkjet iron-on transfers.

Inspiration indeed. I love the cat photos! The white thread with black fabric is way cool. My stiches are way too un-straight to even attempt it. Kudos to you.

I don't need a baby growing inside me for nine months. For one thing, there's morning sickness. If I'm going to feel nauseous and achy when I wake up, I want to achieve that state the old fashioned way: getting good and drunk the night before.

what a cutie idea.

I'll have to try this with my daughter's rabbit.  It would make a cute easter tote.

Now I'll have to straighten out my printer.  always messing up.

Thanks for the nice comments.  I was a little nervous about the straightness of my stitches too, but the closer you're sewing to the edge the easier it is to be straight.  You just use the edge of the material as your guide. 
A rabbit one would be adorable for easter!  My next project is to make one for my other sister with her dog on it.

You know, I used to be super-obsessed with straight stitching, until I pulled out a bag a friend had made for me a few years back before I started sewing. I thought it was the coolest, most professional looking bag when I recieved it, but when I re-examined it after I started sewing, I noticed the stitches weren't so straight and some parts weren't lined up perfectly. The conclusion I came to is that only other sewers notice these things, and only anal sewers really care. Wink

Well basically I printed my photos on the ink jet iron on transfer sheets as 4x6 inch photos and cut them out.  Then I ironed them onto white fabric that I had cut to 4x6 inches plus seam allowances.  Next I ended up cutting the black fabric into squares and rectangles that I could piece together around the iron on piece.  I sewed all the pieces together to make a panel that looked like the piece you cut for a jordy bag.  For this part, I found it was easiest to draw with pencil around the shape of the iron on on the back on the white fabric to give me a line to follow when I sewed it together, so I didnt end up with any white borders between the black and the iron on.  The size of the pieces depends on the size you want your bag to be when finished.  If you want to know what sizes I used, I could find some way to post them.  After I did this for both sides of the bag I just made it like the jordy lined bag.  I made two more of these purses this weekend.  My sisters love them.  They want one made showcasing every pet now!  I could be making these forever. Lol we have a lot of animals!
Hope that answered your question!
