This is the watermelon bag I made for the fruit and veges swap. I liked it so much, I nearly kept it, but decided it was a little too small for all my stuff, so I guess I'll have to make myself another one!





The straps tie up, so you can choose the length you want, and there's a little button and loopy-thing that helps keep it closed. There's also two pockets on the inside. The green is actually a lot nicer than in the pics - my camera doesn't seem to like greens very much  Wink

A tutorial can be found HERE in my blog.

So great! Did you make your own pattern? That's crazy awesome if you did. It would look great with some jeans and a red tank...I can see it now. How long did it take you? It looks so nice. I love fruit-inspired things!

Thanks for the nice comments everyone. Cheesy

Did you applique the seeds?

The seeds I drew on with a fabric marker, I never actually thought of applique, I just chose the easiest way! But applique seeds would look really good!!

Did you make your own pattern?
How long did it take you?

Yeah, I had to make a pattern for the watermelon part, because the bag is wider around the middle of the watermelon than at the sides where the strap is. It took me a good few hours to make, mostly because I had to wait for the fabric paint (the white bits) to dry in between coats.

wow.. this bag is a hottie! I would like to make one for myself, I can imagine how nice would it be to have this in the summer when you are not have to wear all those ugly big coats.. oh yeah it made me miss summer so much!
and if it is not a bad thing can you explain how to do it? I mean, I wonder if the white part between the green and red is fabric? and I am assumming that a zipper could be install instead of loop?

a tutorial maybe? *angel*

Sure, I'll try get a tute done ASAP. The white part is fabric paint. I've never done a zip in a bag before, so I'm not too sure how you would do it, but I suppose it wouldn't be too hard to figure it out??

If there are any problems with it, or stuff you don't understand, let me know and I'll see if I can explain it better.

Don't forget to post pics if you make one!!  Grin
