I'm very into Britney Spears' early work, before she sold out, so mostly her, um, finger painting and macaroni art.

the penguin... being the sort of sale hunter I am, I only just discovered this heatbond magical stuff; it's basically a sheet of paper glue so that you can turn any fabric into an iron on transfer.  Here's a quick-ish rundown of what I did. If it doesn't make sense, I can attempt a tutorial with by extremely basic Illustrator skills...

First, I drew the penguin on a sheet of printer paper, and cut out all the individual pieces that would be different colours
Second, I traced and cut out those shapes from my coloured fabric
Third, I traced those shapes on the HeatBond stuff
Fourth, fused the heatbond stuff to the fabric shapes
Fifth, peeled off the paper backing and ironed the shapes onto the bag!

That bag would definitely sell.  I love it!  And I would sell it for $35.

I've never worked with that heatbond stuff, I'm kinda excited about it!  Does it glue well enough to keep the edges of the cut fabric from fraying?  Does it stand up well to washing?  I'm thinking I'm going to have to go find me some of this magical wonderful stuff!!

I love love love your bag!  My SIL is a hardcore penguin collector so my ears perk up whenever I hear the word!
