So last weekend I got to go to my first anime convention. Naturally, this called for some nerdy bling. Using the free pattern available from All People Quilt called "Swing Bags," (link: http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/projects-ideas/bags-pillows/swing-bags_ss1.html) I made a nerdy bag to carry around the convention.


That's the front. It is decorated with a couple of pins I got from the convention. The pictures of anime characters are done using Printed Treasures iron-on printable fabric. The upper right design is a scene from the film "My Neighbor Totoro," and the lower left picture is my favorite anime heroine, Lum, from the show "Urusei Yatsura." I also decorated a black T-shirt with a larger version of the same Lum picture and wore matching oni horns around the convention. That is the closest I will ever get to cosplay.  Wink


That's the back of my anime bag. It is decorated with another "Urusei Yatsura" character named Kotatsu Neko. I really wanted both sides to be equally nerdy while using as many of my favorite Japanese themed fabrics as possible. I like how it turned out.

I made up my own pattern for a matching wallet. I quilted the fabric with a diamond pattern and put the whole thing together on the fly in under an hour.





Since I was making purses and such anyway I decided to make another purse for the fun of it.

I was going for a steampunk style vibe with this one. I think it needs some gear beads yet or something.

I used a soft color iron on transfer to add the crow design to the fabric. I like how it turned out.

This is the back of the purse.
This is the inside of both purses:

Hope you enjoy the pictures! All comments and constructive criticisms appreciated, thanks for looking. Smiley
