You should never lace a corset completely closed, it is bad for your spine, you should always leave a 2-4 inch gap in the back when lacing.

I made this Totoro bag for my sister for Christmas  Grin

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

would this outfit happen to be your inspiration?

If you want to make use of this velcro, you can use rubbing alcohol to remove the adhesive.

Yes you did get everything! Grin The inside is completely waterproof, my sister is a fashion designer and has connections, so we have a roll of gortex in the basement (nothing we make from it can be sold, but we find plenty of uses for it).  All the embroidery is done free hand, I draw the design on first with fabric markers or ink pens depending on if it will show or not.  I took pictures of the embroidery before I sewed the bag together, the embroidery shows up great against the white batting (I'll post them later).  As for the snail I just found a picture of a snail for reference that was facing the right direction, the outer fabrics all came from my aunt, who is a quilter, purging her stash. The fabric for the actual snail was tye dyed by her.

I found the labels at JoAnns, it's rare that I find anything with my name on so I was really exited about them Cheesy.

I have the matching purple oshibori case, along with a washcloth it will also fit regular silverware, if you don't push the lid all the way down it will also fit a serving spoon, perfect for going to school potlucks where you don't know what you'll find. (the it depatment potlucks are always interesting!)

I got my plate from  http://www.oneida-medical-jewelry.com/ , they sell them separately so that you can attach your own bracelet.  They also have a lot of other options, especially ones for kids.
