I made this bag to indulge my love for sparkly Naugahyde.  It's huge.  My husband calls it a hooker bag.  I had to retire it for awhile because he had to hold it in the car, or carry it for me on occasion, and I realized I could not morally subject him to that anymore.  I love it because the amount of crap I can stash into it is formidable and limitless.

Ha! I love this bag! I want this bag! Hookers and all  Smiley

I do understand what you mean about taking it easy on the husband though Wink

You did a wonderful job on it. Very professional and well-finished. Never worked with Noggie, but I'm thinking it would be difficult.

I was at hancock the other day and I was sooooo tempted to buy some of this, but i have no idea how to sew it. (I'm not sure my machine could handle it) Your bag looks awesome by the way, if my roomy saw it she would steal it for sure, pink sparkley things are her favorite!

Very good job it turned out pretty.  What is it like sewing that stuff?

Awesome bag...LOVE it...and I would love to see my husband holding it for me... Grin !!

Just wondering if you have any tips on sewing with naugahyde? I've tried it before, but it always seems to stick and I just got frustrated and havn't tried since.  And what kind of needle did you use? Any tips would be appreciated because I'd like to make something with the stuff I have at home...

Again...beautifull job on the bag!

That is so beautiful! I love the colors, the outside pockets are so practical, and the finishing is so nice. That would be a great carry-on bag for flying! Everyone else has black luggage but this is totally unique and would never get mixed up with someone else's bag.

Your bag is fantastic!  Really, your husband should be used to your craftyness by now and embrace/deal with it.  You could always put a patch on it that says, "I'm with sexy  -->"  like those "I'm with stupid -->" t-shirts.  That way it could refer to you when he's holding it and refer to you when you're holding it too.  Give it more personality than it already has.  And people would know it's not his.  Maybe that would still be embarassing, though...
