Crafting to keep insanity at bay.

I fell in love with Teesha Moore and her whimsical, fearless style and decided to make a bag for a recent swap partner. It should have taken a lot less time than it did, but with school work in the way it took me about a month and a halfish to get it done. Each panel was sewn separately by hand (though a quarter were partially machine sewed initially) and embroidered with beads, buttons, and whimsies. There is one panel I stenciled myself, and a few favorite tshirts I cut up to include fun graphics. I even did a lining (to hide all the thread ends and knots mostly) which is very basic but works. I will miss this bag forever, but that just means I have to make another one for myself  Smiley I'd love to hear any comments or suggestions for improvement on my next one, because, oh yes, there will be a next one  Grin

Love it sheepBlue!  This one has been on my project to do list for months too.... I really like how you did the handles, it goes great with the rest of the bag.  It must have been really hard to mail off, lucky partner Grin

Thanks so much everyone! I'm really happy with how I decided to approach making the handles - I originally thought to crochet the handle but the scrappy braid fits in perfectly.
