I just completed my very first Teesha Moore bag, inspired by sheepBlue's Harry Potter bag , and I'm SO EXCITED to share it with someone!  It's a surprise for my daughter, who won't get to see it for 2 more days.  I used every technique I could think of to make each square unique from the others.  I used transfers of images and quotes from the TV show; 3D objects like the moonstone, the diary, and the fake flower (vervain); embroidery (which I suck at); fabric paint pens (to write "doppelganger" instead of trying to embroider it); iron-on patches; and acrylic paint (to do the blood splatter).  I found two t-shirts at the Salvation Army that I was able to incorporate into the design... the "E" for Elena and the "blood bank," which obviously came off of a local blood bank donor shirt.  (You'd be surprised how many blood donor shirts are out there!)  I decided to try and make side and bottom panels so that the tote would hold more, and so I also did a lot of ripping and redoing too!  Next time I'll start with the bottom panel, make sure everything's square, and work my way up.  I also added a lining to cover up all of the knots and strings on the inside.  Now I've got to decide on a theme for my next bag, which will be for me!  Maybe Pride & Prejudice??

Thanks, everyone, for the kind words.  I hated to give it away, but now I can concentrate on making one for myself.  I'm trying to think of ideas for a Pride and Prejudice bag, but I don't want to rely on too many pictures from the movie.  This one may take me a while!  I'm inspired every day by the TM squares I see on Craftster.  Everyone is so talented!
