OH MY GOD! finally i made something and post it, i am sooo proud of it, I have many time of no sewing because i have a little boy (1 year old) that doesn't give me any time for crafting, so if you see any crooked stitch, just be kind  Wink anyway, you can imagine what kind of work took me to complete this bag/purse/or what ever it's name is ... oh i almost forgot, i dont speak english that well...so, kind again  Grin
ok, here comes the story, i live in mexico, and theres a big fashion store called "El Palacio de Hierro" ("The Iron Palace") it has a very strong advertising where  so-glam-girls say: "Soy Totalmente Palacio" ("I am Totally Palace") it is a very known phrase over here, hurray for advertising! ... ok, that was the background. Now, i have a friend, America... actually she is my cousin, and we love to go to flea markets (the "pulga") and buy a lot of cool stuff, there is where i get t-shirts and other second hand clothes to modify and have fun with, so i made this very cute bag for her to go to the flea market, and it says: "Soy Totalmente Pulguera" which is: "I am Totally Flea-Market", i made an stencil for the shopping girl, and the letters are from iron on transfers, when i have already cutted i found that beauty polkadot lining, actually that was a  never sewn girl dress, so, let's go to the PICS

 detail of stencil and letters, this is so funny

great lining isnt it? it closes with magnetic snap, so easy to use, and i created a key holder, America ALWAYS get's them lost... ALWAYS.

AAAAHHHHH a baby pulguera comes for keeping money (not for long)..i had a little problem with that last transfer, maybe i will make another one later...probably not  Tongue

wow! it has a cell pocket too!!
and the best part (well i dont know which is the best)...

OH MY...did i really made it??

and at least the quality control:

sorry for bad english, hope you get the idea, please tell me what do you think, pleeeease...

That's very nice and I love the transfer! Pink and polka dots are a great combination.  Your English is fine and a hundred times better than my Spanish.

Eso es muy agradable y amo la transferencia! Puntos del color de rosa y del polka--gran combinacin. No preocuparte de tu ingls -- es cientos veces mejor que mi espaol. Recepcin a los tableros.

If you can read this, thank a teacher!

Such a great phrase, and a wonderful bag for all your flea market finds! We have a great Sunday flea market in Sevilla, I definitely need a bag like that when I go to it!

(I've just started learning Spanish so this may not be perfect Wink but...
Es una bolsa muy agradable, y muy prctico para el Pulguera!

HOLY CUTENESS!!! That is the MOST adorable bag! you chose well with the decoration on the front. How did you make the stencil?  Very good eye. I think the polka dots is a very cute touch to it too. With the cell phone and coin purse it it looks like you have paid very special attention to detail.
Good work! Keep it up!

This is fantastic! I love how it looks like a designer bag, and yet speaks to the flea-market girl in me!

Nicely done! The details and design are great!

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