Well, it might be obvious that I like the Marauder's Map.

This bag however I made for the Harry Potter Swap 6 for jigarkhwar.

The bag is lined with a quilting fabric I got on sale, because the craftingshop was stopping with quilting materials.
and the outer side of it is handdyed with coffee, tea and fabricpaint. Then the Map was drawn on with fabricmarkers.



This is the bag.



This is a close-up of the front.



And this is how it looks like when it's folded open.

And on the sides there were little footprints drawn on. But I forgot to take photo's of that.

Wow!!  Let me get this right.  You started with a plain fabric and did all of the decorating including the fine lettering.  If so, it's astounding and quite an achievement.  It must have taken forever.

Thank you all for the nice comments! Smiley

And yes, I started out with a plain cotton blend or something like that. First I dyed it in a coffee and tea blend and splattered it with darker coffee and fabricpaint to give it a old look. And then made a bag out of it with a different lining. Then I drew on the design of the map with a fabricmarker. The fabricmarker didn't survive it's ordeal though Sad

I am one heck of a lucky duck!  This bag is super amazing and the pics dont do it justice.  I have been using it ever since I got it.  People constantly ask me where I got it and no one believes it is handmade!  This is one of my favorite things!  One of my favorite parts is the strap with the lace!  It is beautiful and well everything about it is.  I really love every part of it!

When I saw that pic my inner HP nerd went all giddy. That is super super super cool. And you did that all freehand??? You DREW that?Huh I don't know if I could even make a bag with fabric that had the print already on it. Major props to you.
