I was in Goodwill, on the prowl for anything craft-worthy (by the way, has anyone noticed the rise in Goodwill prices?! I mean, some shirts are like $5! You could find NEW shirts for that price nowadays!). Anyway, I found this bag that was a nice size; not too big and not too small. I think it's a diaper bag since there are many pockets for bottles and it says "Baby Goose" on it. Is that spit up on that bag?! Ewww~! But hey, only $2.50. Can't beat the price.

I was wondering around Jo Ann Fabrics looking for fabric for a swap when I found this really cool, tie-dye lookin' fabric! With my snazzy 40% off coupon, it was affordable. I had to have it. While waiting for the cutting table, I noticed this matching fringy stuff that was awesome! So, I had to have that too.

Blah blah blah. I'm babbling. Here's the recon!

(there's a zipper pushing the fringe up, so it looks weird from this angle...)


My stitching was not perfect because I was so paranoid I was going to break my needle! Sad It's happened twice before, stitching thick things, and I only have one left! Comments, critiques and whatnot are appreciated! <3

love it!  Great fabric choice.  They put all sorts of fun stuff by the cutting line, it's like candy and trashy mags at the grocery store.  Cheesy  Very nice recon!

Inspiration without application is moot.

Next time, try a tougher needle -- a leather or jeans needle can handle thicker sewing.

It looks great! And yes, Goodwill has upped their prices on everything it seems. I don't even like to go into the one by me because every time I do, it seems I get pissed off at their prices on stuff that is basically junk. I tried complaining to their corporate offices (about the unfriendliness of the staff as well as the prices) and they basically told me they didn't care. Yeah, I don't like Goodwill so much anymore.

Anyways, your bag is awesome. I love the fringe!
