first post - first challenge  Grin

this is a bag I made for my sister - it's inspired by our new favorite dancing song by swedish band: mando diao - 'dance with somebody'
check out the song and its incredible video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9rLqHBaxBg --> I simply love it  Grin

materials: grey, white and dark-red felt, red cotton, black thread, iron transfer paper for inkjetprinters

pattern for bag by aranzi aronzo (book), application inspired by the single cover, text by mando diao

I hope you like it, enjoy

close ups
watch cover on ipod...

and the stitching - not so good  Sad

I did my best as I'm still a newbie to sewing with a machine and stitching letters...
so what do you think?

Great job! I love the bag and the letters are fun! That's the fun of handmade, yeah? It's all original.

I like how you did the graphic on the front too...When you said you're still a newbie and stuff...well, hell, my first bag didn't look near as awesome.  Cheesy

I thank you for the nice comments
as always I'm critical with myself - but I do like it now  Wink

@ CrazyR: I haven't seen them live yet but would like to - what a pity that you can't take this chance.
