That's a cool bag. I love the fabric and colors. Great way to do the handle. I'll have to try it. The bag has a great shape. Did you use a pattern?

how did you make that wallet? ive been wanting to make one like that for ages!

then looking upward i strain my eyes & try, to tell the difference between shooting stars & statellites, from the passenger seat as you are driving me home. "do they collide?" i ask & you smile. with my feet on the dash the world doesn't matter.

Thanks! I made a pattern up.  I've been seeing these bags everywhere, but with all the giltter on them.  I wanted something not so sparkly so I went to repotdepot.com and got the retro fabric.  The wallet is suprisingly really simple to make and only takes about and hour... mind you I had never made one before and there was alot of trial and error. So I would assume it would take hardly anytime at all to make them when you know what you're doing.  I'll put up a tutorial as soon as I get a chance for the wallet.
