Sooooo . . . some friends and I have tickets for the Honda Civic Tour, which will be here next week, and Paramore is the headline act this year. Woohoo! Cheesy So, I got inspired to make this bag to take with me . . . who knows, maybe the band will see it and think it is awesome. Smiley

The bag:


Crocheted in Red Heart SS in light blue and . . . musty green. XD. I'm not sure what the exact color is, my dad brought it home from a thrift store for me.

Close-up of the butterfly, which is based off of Paramore's "Brand New Eyes" album:


The inside:


And a close-up of the fabric, because it is beautiful and I love it Smiley :


The bag actually didn't cost too much to make. Even though it was thrift store yarn, if you counted it as buying it brand new, 2 skeins of yarn ($6) + 2/3 yard of fabric on sale ($3) = about $10, give or take, to make it. The most costly part was crafting time - overall I think it's about 10-12 hours worth of crafting. Meep.

Comments/constructive criticism welcome. Smiley Not bad, considering I basically free-formed the whole thing.

Beautiful bag!  The fabric you found for the inside is just perfect!  I'm also seeing Paramore next (now this) week, on Saturday!  Are we going to the same one, I wonder?  =D
