For Halloween this year, my boyfriend decided that we'll be going as a team from the greatest children's game show of all time: Legends of the Hidden Temple.  While I'm thrilled at the opportunity to achieve an unfulfilled childhood dream (i.e. kicking butt as a Green Monkey), I'm also a girl and will need to lug stuff around to parties/across the moat and through the Temple. My boyfriend suggested I wear a fanny pack.

I stared at him for a solid 15 seconds before asking if he was serious.

When he said he was, I reminded myself that I love him despite the fact that he doesn't understand clothing.  I could just carry a normal wristlet, but since I was deprived of my annual tradition of sewing my own costume I decided to make something even better.  I needed something to fit the theme, though. Something small and representative of the show that the contestants carried around with them.

Boom. Pendant of Life.

I searched high and low for a tutorial for the purse I was picturing and finally stumbled upon GeekySweetheart's Travel Embroidery Case (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=380923.0).  Awesomeness then ensued.

Giraffe flannel lining. Both Legends-y AND sure to elicit a laugh from the boyfriend, who thinks my love of giraffes is odd.

I had a little bit of trouble with the strap since I wasn't putting it in the same spot as the tutorial showed. I eventually settled on 2 lines of stitching to make the seam mostly sort of flat.

This is absolutely amazing, both the purse and the costume idea. I'm filing that one away for future use! And I would totally pay for one of those purses. I love random purses like that, just for every day life.

Oh my god, I am so jealous right now! How come I couldn't think of an awesome costume like that?! Too bad I already decided what I'm gunna be this year, otherwise I would definitely be stealing your idea (but playing for the Red Jaguars, haha).
