Well, here's my first posted project.  I hope I'm putting this in the right category...I guess it's technically a bag/tote.  

I'm going to a comic convention next weekend, and I love getting sketches and prints from the artists.  This year I've decided to carry a portfolio with me so that I don't have to worry about wrinkling up my new artwork.  I bought one at Michael's with a boring black plastic cover, and needed to jazz it up a bit.  I had seen the pink camo with skulls fabric at Joanns a few weeks ago, but didn't buy it because I didn't know what to use it for.  When I came up with this idea, I had to run back and grab the last yard they had.  I added an old pearly button for a closure and viola!

I'm a really nervous sewer when it comes to making things up as I go, but I'm really happy with how this turned out.  (Sorry about the bad lighting in the second one...the flash reflection washed it out a bit.)


Having an open mind isn't a bad thing. Just don't open it so wide that your brain falls out.

That looks neat, I love the button especially.  I'm a nervous sewer too, so I can sympathize.  But it came out really great !

WOW!  I love the pink skull fabric and the tote idea is super.  I was at a JoAnn's last week and wish I had seen that fabric--I would have loved using it for my dog collars.  I think you did a great job!

I saw that fabric just yesterday and thought "ooh, I bet you can do some great stuff with that!"

And I was right. That looks awesome! Smiley

I <3 the fabric. In the skull swap my partner sent me a headband made from the same fabric and it rocks!
