I made this for my brother for Christmas. He wanted a small bag with that he can carry large books that do not fit in his pocket. It is the size of an average Comic book but deeper.
I embroidered an old typewriter on the front (very much inspired by this post) He is into writing and old school typewriters and stuff. The bag is made from some fancy upholstery fabric that looks a bit like elephant skin.

The bag is lined with the outside fabric to stiffen it up. And I stuffed the bag with organic chocolate cupcake mix. (He probably liked that most  Wink)

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

This is great!  I love the subtle, but graphic typewriter embroidery.
