I've been making bags like crazy lately! Cheesy

First, is a totoro cut-out handle bag. It doesn't hold much, just a wallet and keys. But I usually don't carry much more than that anyway.

I used a crayon transfer technique to make the totoro, then I just hand-stitched it on

My sakura bag, with tied straps:

This one's not very big either, I think it's about 10" wide x 7" tall

Funky post office tote. The outer fabric had some really cool stitching already on it, and I used blue polka dot fabric for the inside. The bag also has pockets on the outside for pens:

An action shot to see how it hangs. (Sorry it's not very close up, that was the only mirror in the house, and you have to stand kinda far to get a full view.)


And this last one I made especially to use for my nurse aid class. I love how the fabric on the strap alternates between the outer and inner fabrics. Oh, and it also has outside pockets for pens, lotion, and a notepad.



I know the pictures are kinda blurry. A photographer I am not.  Cry

what is the crayon transfer method?

I used regular crayons, ironed the picture with a washcloth soaked in vinegar, and then let it soak in a salt-water mixture.
This thread discusses it more in detail:

But I know that crayola has also made a kind of crayon that is specific for iron-on transfers.
