I love the Teesha Moore style but didn't ever have the patience to try it until craftylittlemonkey shared her super easy tutorial take on it! http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=356111.0

I went a more simpler route yet and it looks totally different but is basically the same technique!

I love laying out the material and designing them..it takes me quite a while to actually finish them with the embelishing and adding a zipper and handle and all...I have about ten bags started and two finished lol! Here is a smaller one (about 10 inches wide) that I am giving to a sister-in-law for her birthday this month!

side #1

side #2

I used a small roll of some sparkly braided rope I found for the handle. I hand sewed a small black zipper at the top of the bag for closure. I used different beads and buttons to go with a red and black theme. I sewed that patches of material on with a tinsel thread with the machine for extra sparkle..sorry it doesn't really show in the pics!  Thanks for looking, I will have more to come in the future as I finish them lol!

Like button! LIKE BUTTON!
I clicked on the new Teesha Moore project only to find it's a super groovy "lazy girl" version Cheesy. Totally love it, it looks just fab <3.

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.

Very cute!! Roll Eyes I love all of your embellishments. It's much simpler than the Teesha Moore bags, but I love them. You did a very good job on it, can't wait to see more!! I'm doing one too, but it's more like Teeshas'.  Maybe I'll get it done by Christmas (Ha). Thanks for showing.  Wink
