I'm knitting the poster boy bag but without the posterboy, I'm adding eyelets and satin ribbon to match a satin lining, a bit of a cop out, not doing the intarsia, but I really liked the shape of the bag and wanted something simpler

Everything happens for a reason??? I'm still waiting for someone to tell me the reason

WOW!  it turned out awesome!  way to go!    Roll Eyes

OK I finally took pictures of the finished product.

I love this bag soooo much. It's probably my favorite thing I've knitted for myself. I'm definitely wearing it out tonight.

I've started knitting my bag.  I just finished the front!

It's Dave Grohl.  I made it a little narrower than the pattern says.  I think I'm going to block it, so it's nice and straight.  And of course, I still have to knit the back and handles and line it.

Okay, I am really bad with this graph paper thing.  I want to make a bag with this picture on it (it doesn't have to be this exact picture of whatshisface, but I want it to be recognizable).  I've tried a few different images on the graph paper and the website that put graphs on pictures for you, but it isn't coming out right.  Any help?

Here's the gist of what I want to put on a bag:

EDITED TO ADD:  I think maybe I finally found a picture that worked with the graphing webpage, so nevermind!

I made a big boo-boo with my bag!  I'm knitting one for a friend with an image of Johnny Depp in Cry Baby on it.  The pic is great and I had no problems making the graph etc.

BUT!  this is my first intarsia project and my first circulars project and it's all gone horribly wrong.  First attempt I ended up with a moebius strip instead of a bag.  I'm now on my second attempt and have finished up to Johnny's mouth, but it all looks tight and you can see vertical ridges pulling the picture inwards, where I tended to twist the two strands of yarn around each other in the same place in the row each time.  (I'm using Rowan cotton rope as I'm in the UK). 

Can anyone reassure me that this is a common problem and also tell me how to avoid it?  Is it purely and simply that I'm knitting too tightly?

Everyone else's on here looks great so it really bugs me that mine's gone so wrong.   Angry
You're in pretty good shape for the shape you are in.

Poster boy is not val kilmer:
I was trying to figure out who to use as my poster boy... Once I saw that the original pattern was bowie. I decided to support the unsung hero of glam rock brian eno. I'm halfway done and will post a pic respectively.

I wasn't ever able to get a picture to work right, I also don't have photoshop so I don't know.  I couldn't decide on a picture either.
