I just finished up a personal swap with Amyracinrose and this book bag is one of the things I sent her. She had the picture on her wists with a comment that said it would look really cute on a book bag, so......voila! I changed the colors to suit her style, changed the hair to make for easier embroidering, and added a cute, cherry linging that has little sparklies on it. I love the lining fabric so much!

I'm such a lucky girl!  This bag is so amazing!  You really did a fabulous job on it.. the colors.. the stitches.. everything is just perfect!  And the fabric you used to line it?  I LOVE it!  Thank you sooooooo much!

I love how you interpreted the wist image to embroidery...I'd understand if you prefer to keep the pattern to yourself...it is your baby after all!
And your stitching is so neat & tidy...
More love!

Hi guys! Thanks for all the nice comments! I am a little hesitant to post the pattern I used, simply because it's not my design. Yes, I altered the original image a bit, but I do not want to take credit for someone else's work and I feel like sharing a pattern for a design that I did not create would be doing just that. I'm sorry to disappoint, but really all I did was trace the original design (the changes I made were making the letters a different font and size, and turning her hair into a bun) so I'd say just do that. Again, thanks for all the nice comments, I really appreciate them! Smiley

Do you still have the original image that you could post?  I found it on her wists but kept getting an error page when I clicked on it, and when I googled for it I could never find the image bigger than a tiny thumbnail.   Undecided

Actually I just right clicked the picture from the first page, clicked view image, and printed it out.  It's about 4x6.

Here's a link to the original design. That's not the exact picture I used, the etsy seller I got mine from is no longer there, but it's the same.
