Well, firstly - this entire bag was hand sewn. All the sequins, emrboidery, stitches, heming, zipper... so on and lame forth.

Secondly - was inspired by http://www.freepeople.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/products.detail/productID/46d8d4a3-ee3b-4c01-a82e-f47bb8bc2a9e/categoryID/6f416d27-7521-4d57-9b23-29c869b8ac1b from freepeople.com . I saw this and thought it was cute, but totally thought, "Hey, I could probably make one, and make it cuter".

Well, as the night turned into morning, my sewing got worse and worse, haha. I usually don't handsew.. I think the last time I ever really handsewed outside buttons and putting trim on was when I was seven and attempting to make doll clothes. Also, this is pretty much a rough draft for what I might do if I decide to make some more... it was made from scrap bits, so yeah...

I think I'd go machine next time, then add finer details later, lol.

Anyway, here it is, horribly colored due to light and camera and sleepyness of me::





comments? suggestions? critiques?

I think it's cute - not bad for handsewing.
