6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / A&F Tote. on: September 09, 2006 01:56:57 PM
I want this bag but its like 30-40 bucks. That's a lot for just a tote. I guess its the Abercrombie brand/logo, but still.
So I was thinking, since the design is simple, I'd just buy a navy tote, but then the logo...
Any ideas on how I can copy the A&F onto the tote? (Without it looking like its a fake?)

Lately I've been seeing these thermals and thermal hoodies around at my favorite stores. I don't get allowance or any money to spend shopping so I thought I'd make one on my own for a lesser price with fabric from Hancock's. Any ideas on how they made this?

I just bought a yard and a half of green polka dot fabric and used a yard, give or take couple inches. I have, a decent amount of fabric left and I'm not sure what to do with it. Belt or another skirt? Any ideas and/or tutorials would be helpful and much appreciated.
