I had bought this bag with every intention of adding my own touches to it. I settled on a BBC Sherlock theme. I already had the "221B wallpaper" fabric leftover from lining a hood and I knew I wanted to use it to line my new bag with. I'm not going to lie, I would line everything with this fabric if I could...if I didn't have to sew it all by hand like I did with this bag!  Cheesy

I painted a smaller version of "Mr. Blue Skull" for my partner in a skull themed swap and just couldn't resist painting him a second time. Here, I hand painted him onto a solid white craft bandana, cut him out, ironed him on with hem tape and outlined him with sparkle fabric paint for extra reinforcement.

Below is a link to the original bag. It had two inner dividers but one of them didn't connect to the bottom, so I cut it out. I might replace or pad the strap as well but it will probably take me forever to finally get to it  Tongue
I use the ammo loops to hold my sunglasses.
