Ok, so I'm finally getting around to posting some things I've made for Christmas gifts. My little cousin, she's 13 has had the nickname grumpy since she was about 2 and went through the whole "terrible twos" stage, when she'd get in a mood she was dubbed grumpy as apposed to her usual nickname of Sugar. Anyway, I purchased a 2xl t-shirt at the disney store with none other then grumpy & dopey, combined it with some orange fabric that matched and made her a travel bag for when she comes to visits or goes on the obligatory teenage slumber party. It was a big hit with her & the fam, I already have several requests for others.  Grin Ok, onto the pics

Comments, criticism, & questions welcomed

that looks really well made! did you use a pattern, or just freestyle it? You must've used a lining, right? I also likes the rings on the side; it looks really sturdy.

There is a post on craftster that i used to make travel bags previously, it's called the funky travel bag or something like that. I've since drafted my own with slightly different dimensions, but it's the same concept.

It is lined, the outer layer is the t-shirt fabric with a heavy interfacing, the outer orange fabric is interfaced too, then it's lined with a cotton fabric that matches the tan color of the t-shirt. As for the rings, well they're my favorite bag accessory....shower curtain rings  Grin

LOVE the bag! I'm a huge Disney fan. That bag is so pretty.

shower curtain rings as in...slip thru the fabric,over the rod and click?
If so, and they're your fav they must be sturdy and stay closed. (?)

WOW!!!! I love this bag! You did a wonderful job. I can't believe it wasn't in the featured category. This bag rocks and I would indeed love one just like it. I couldn't find that pattern you were talking about though.

Can make dresses for your princess!

This bag looks great.

I did have a question but

the outer layer is the t-shirt fabric with a heavy interfacing,

that answers it!

I must look through some of my old T's I have a few I'd saved for cushions, I hadn't thought they'd be sturdy enough for a bag.
