i made this Nightmare Before Christmas bag for my friend for her birthday. i used a black canvas bag i got at walmart. i ripped it all apart and changed the fabric that was on the insides. it used to be all black on the inside too. i forgot to take the before photo. i embroidered two pictures on, one on the front, and one on the inside. i'm new to embroidery so i used a simple stitch. i like how it turned out.

the front of the bag

a close up of the embroidery on the front of the bag

the inside flap and inside front of the bag

the inside of the bag, with a zippered pocket

i didn't make the buttons. they were the inspiration for the bag. sorry i got my foot in the last photo.
c&c welcome! thanks for looking.

I'm willing to do a personal swap! :-)

Oh, I LOVE it! The stitching is awesome, too. I like the lining fabric, it goes perfect with the outside stitching. Great job!
