Well, no doom really.  It was fairly easy to make.  It is for Glamis in the I <3 to sew swap.  The inside is based on this one http://community.livejournal.com/craftgrrl/9660336.html because  I wasn't sure what size pockets would be good for holding knitting projects and tools.  This bag is smaller than hers though, and only slightly larger than an A4 page.  I am not really into skulls, and neither is hubby, but he thought it was pretty great.  (Well he would have to, otherwise there would be no dinner  Grin )  It is made form black corduroy and a black/red/white Maori print on the inside.

I love the sparkly green buttons for his eyes.
   

Pockets inside for holding knitting needles and other knitting type stuff...wool and scissors I suppose.
 

And this is the best pic of the other side, there is a large pocket with 3 buttons for decoration.  Baby not included


Thanks for looking  Smiley

I don't know what's more awesome, this bag, or the HUGE amount of patience you must have had to sew this many buttons. I would have gone nuts!
