Title: Totoro bag and Snail bag (image heavy)
Post by: lillian641 on January 29, 2008 08:54:48 PM
I made this Totoro bag for my sister for Christmas  ;D

Front of Totoro


Back of Totoro


Totoro with stuff inside


Inside, there is a pocket, you just can't see it very well


I added Totoro's nose, whiskers, and markings in photoshop, my sister wants to embroider them herself




I made the snail insulated lunch bag for my partner in the bento swap, it velcros shut and the inside is waterproof

Completed Snail Bag


Snail Bag full


Snail Head Detail


inside view of the freehand machine embroidery on the back of the bag to hold the batting in place


outside view of butterfly embroidery


back inside showing one of the pockets, there are two pockets, one on each side of the inside


label
