Hi everyone.  This is my bottomless entry.  I LOVE big giant bags & its very hard for me to find store-bought bags large enough for my taste...so I decided to make one. 
The bag measures 17"w x 15"H x 5 1/2" d with a 45" strap...that's right...a 45" strap.  I can fit EVERYTHING in this bag...my dayplanner wallet, diapers, wipes, snacks, makeup, toys, lunches, bottles, and so much more...all at once.  The strap is long enough to wrap around my double strollers handle.  Tell me what you think...

I inherited these Austrian crystals & beads when my 99 year old Aunt passed several years ago.  They must be over 50 years old & still vibrant...

I've never embroidered with beads before...sorry if it isn't the most professional...

Also, a quick note... this is all from my warped imagination... no pattern... Wink

the back

and the inside  inside   inside..... *echo...echo...echo...*

This is a great-looking bag! And your beadwork is beautiful! I've never tried to do anything like that before- it would sap my patience I think and I'd end up with half of a dragon!  Wink And it is so nice that you were able to use some "family heirlooms" to make your bag- what a great personal touch!

The choices you make today determine the choices you will have tomorrow.

*blushing*  Kiss  Thanx to all of you for your kind words.  I love this bag, and while I really reenforced the beadwork...I'm too scared to use it   Lips sealed  But I will...maybe when the kids are in college (they love little shiney things)...16 more years  Tongue   Grin Grin
