ive been signed off with stress i have been on a crafty binge to relax 
and being a fan of 'the jordy's work i attempted my first jordy after following this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=32204.0 tutorial
here's my attempt....(its a bit slouchy compared to the one in the tute but i havent added a fastening yet and my fabric was a bit softer....i know excuses excuses)

ps - im not sure wether it needs anything adding or wether to leave well alone  Huh

What size did you make it?  It looks quite a bit bigger then the jordy dimensions..

I love Tinkerbell.  Where did you get that fabric.  I think your bag looks great.  Did you want it stiffer?  Did you use interfacing?  And I agree, it does not need anything added. (I am thinking like a flower, or pin or something like that.)

What cute Tinkerbell fabric you used! I don't think it needs anything added, unless you might want to add velcro or something to close it up with. Otherwise, I like it... slouchy hobos are really in style these days Smiley

thankyou for all the nice comments  Smiley its always good to get other peoples opinions

in answer to your questions...

the dimensions i used were slightly bigger than the jordy, i used 12x15inch for my original cut outs and i cut bigger squares out of the corners (i think 2.25) i also made the strap a bit longer (although the thickness is the same)

unfortunatley i didnt have interfacing but i used a layer of tougher, thicker fabric in its place just to add a bit of strength to the bag. at first i thought it was too slouchy but now ive started to like it and it obviously is less slouchy once i have chucked my stuff and junk into it!!

the fabric was a bargin! i found it in a bargin bin of childrens fabric in a discount fabric shop in liverpool (uk) i think it cost me about 2 and i have enough left to make at least 2 more bags (although im probably going to make other things with it...i may make a mini jordy for my niece who is 5) one of the things i come up against with my crafting is lack of money so i have become a bit of a bargin bin rummager!!!

the only thing i was thinking of adding was some sort of decoration at the corner but i think that i will just make a broache (sp???) that matches that i can use when i want and take off when i change my mind!
