My messenger bag of zombie goodness!  I saw the shirt on Threadless and had to have it. i didnt care what size they had left, i knew i could do something with it.   it was a rush job, the downfall of all of my crafting/sewing projects is my lack of patience.  I meant to do more, but i just started using it instead. I think it turned out pretty good though, if rather simple.  I have been rather surprised at the amount of people who don't recognize the quote.  Night of the living dead?  come on!



and this is just a simple purse i made.  This is the first purse i made all from scratch, generally i just alter purses that i find cheap.  I did buy the outside fabric, the rest i scrounged from around the house: a t-shirt for the lining, and a belt for the strap.  I'm going to add something on the flap to help keep it closed, weigh it down a bit if nothing else. I used the Rounder Roomy bag tutorial by sushimifune from the ultimate list, which is fantastic i might add.  very easy, looks good. 
but yah, my purse.  i think it needs assorted indie kid buttons.

I would love to make something like that and wear it around a friend who is terrified of zombies. She'd kill me though... very nice
