I bought a youth small tee-shirt at a concert the other day. It was only $5 and compaired to the shirts that would have fit me at $25 it was a steal! I <3 The Pink Spiders!
I roughly used thejordy's tutorial for a Jordy bag http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=32204.0, but my bag came out more round bottomed then square bottomed.  Wink I still love it though!

Before I cut it up:


In progress, because you can see the actual color of the lining:


And now all done!
The front:


The back:


The inside (And like I said the color is waaaaaay off here. The "in progress" picture show the color the best), I love this fabric:


The handy inside pocket:


And a not so great action picture:


My bag is a little lopsided, but you can't tell unless you look really hard. I love my new bag, but I might add a snap to close it. Smiley
Thank you for looking!

And it makes me want to go and hide
This world is full of misery, the anger is too big to see
That's why I had to dream this dream

Lopsided? I can't tell from the pictures even though I put my glasses on. I think it looks really cool and I love the lining! Can I borrow your idea, I'd love to try it on some old children's T:s.

CUUUUUTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
I LOVE the Pink Spiders.
Like...you have no idea.
This is a great idea for tiny t-shirts.
Perhaps I'll stop shelling out twenty five bucks to show my love for my bands.

Thank you both, I'm glad you like it!! Smiley

And I think it might all be in my head. So far everyone has told me that it's not lopsided.

And you can totally use the idea. I would use interfacing as well though. I didn't and I wish I would have, it's a little on the floppy side.

$25 for a tee-shirt is crazy, not that I'm not guilty of buying them (I have probably like 15-20 band shirts alone). With the cost of the bag and the lining I spent about $9! And I think I'll use this bag way more then I wear those tee-shirts!

I love this!  I don't know the band, but I approve of the name.  I love anything that says "spiders."  You did a really nice job!

I am an apologist for the spiders.

Just treat me no differently than you would the Tarantula Queen.

Its amazing how developers will now make a game on the wii based on ONE thing and then sell it for 50 dollars. Whats next? "Walk!: The Game. Now Available on the Wii, use motion sensing controls on the wiimote and nunchuk to walk at different speeds!!

i love that band and your bag came out too cute for words.

I wouldn't have been able to tell it was lopsided at all.

Quick question; where did you acquire the t-shirt? I haven't found a single one.

I bought it at their concert about a week ago, they had a bin of kids shirts for $5. I'm guessing they were trying to get rid of them, I can't see to many people buying them for $25. I know on there website (http://www.thepinkspiders.com/) you can buy shirts, but I'm not sure how much the cost or what sizes they have.


All you guys are too nice, thank you for your kind words. Smiley
