So, it was my friend's 18th the other day, and her current life bag was in tatters. In I come with my crafty prowess, ready to save the day. I deceided to make her a new one - big enough to hold everything you could ever need (hence the name, 'life bag').

The fabrics were on sale at Spotlight (yay for sales), for about $3/m, and all buttons, lace, zippers I already had in my ever-exploding stash. Anyway, onto the pics:


Here it is:


And the inside:


And a (blurry - oops) pic of her name on the front:

Let me know what you think. All criticisms welcome - how else do we learn??

Thanks.

Absolutely great.  Love the personalized part - I'm a sucker for monograms!

I think you did a great job on the bag. Your friend must love it!
I like the fabric too, YAY for Spotlight sales, not good for the fabric addiction though, Wink
Did you follow a pattern or is it your own design?
