I didn't take a before picture, but this bag started out as a blue denim number with a silk screen of Cinderella on the front. Cinderella's cool and all, but the bag was pretty boring as a whole, and the strap was too short for my liking, so I decided to make it a little more me Smiley.

Sorry for hugeness Undecided:

Great bag!!!! Very clever.
Just wondering..... have you had any problems with the bits falling off? If not, what kind of glue did you use?

I started out with a fabric glue but it didn't work well at all so I switched to a thick tacky glue, which is working like a charm on the Troll, glitter, and the pom-poms. The beads, however, started falling off like crazy once the glue tried, so I had to give in and sew them all down Tongue.

No problem. I'm sure there's gotta be some glue out there that'll hold the buggers down, but it was easier for me to just relent and sew them down than to keep trying.

Ack! It's so awesome! So kitschy. I just love it.

There's this fabric glue called "ok to wash it" by Aleene's which claims to be so strong that you can machine wash it! I've used it with much success but I've never tried to wash an item with it.

The other thing that maybe would work well is hot glue because it's so plasticy and it would really seap into both the pom pom and the fabric.

Kudos on this!

Oh that's so ridiculously loud and bright, I love it! If you were an 8yr old girl you'd be the most popular kid at school with that bag  Cheesy
