APC= A Perfect Circle... a very excellent band.

We recently did a swap (too, apc, nin, etc) and my partner received so i thought i would post some pics!im so very happy with it... it was hard to let go..

this is the "front" or back, whichever... It is black corduroy and there is a Burgundy corduroy gusset.
The design is made from felt and then i used my machine to embroider it into place. That is the APC logo.
It is also a pocket with Velcro closure lined with the Burgundy corduroy

close up

This is the "back"
This side was inspired by a song by APC called "The Noose"

The lyrics embroidered around the edge are ..."your halo slippin down to choke you now"
embroidered in orange variegated floss
Also there is a noose embroidered onto a pocket

Close up of the embroidery... sorry i hadn't cleaned up the bag yet, theres still the markings on it...


The inside of the bag is fully lined and i did use interfacing (which is my new favorite thing) with skull and roses fabric. with 2 pockets. one of the lining and one of corduroy. both have Velcro closures.
The bag itself also has Velcro closures... i like things to stay secure.
(oh another reason i used the fabric was another APC song is called Rose. and its a super song too.


The strap was something new i was trying... a new way of making it adjustable..


I know theres alot going on there... but i think over all its a pretty bitchin bag... i really wanted to keep it... alot..

any comments? questions? hate it? love it?

I'm totally in love with APC... and your bags  Wink

Embroidery lyrics are very neat!!! Did you sewed it with your hands, or sewing machine?
