Can you find a way to make a pin out of little plastic toy Army soldiers?

You could make a "flower" shape out of them...a bit of glue...with a fabric backing...glue to a pin back...

I was trying to make a jordy to carry my lunch to work in (just small stuff), but it turned out to be the tiniest bag ever.... Oh well, maybe I can fit 1/2 a sandwich in it or something! (but I did do my first successful button hole, so that's something)

After a bajillion months of perusing these pages and drooling over everyone's totes, I've finally made 2 myself.

Thank you, Jordy.  Thank you everyone who posted pics of your own fabulous bags.

FYI:  My bags measure 16x14.  The straps are about 41x3.  I cut the body pieces with a 1/2 inch seam allowance; the bottom squares I cut 2 1/4".  For the patches, I used iron-on transfer paper and acrylic felt.  I fused them to the bags for stability, then embroidered around them.  I made these for my teaching assistants at the court reporting/stenography school where I work, so the patches reflect that.

I love the fabric I used to line the black bag.  I've got more of it so it'll be showing up in future projects.  I attempted to line the striped one in a burgundy t-shirt fabric but the stretch was way too much.  I ended up using a black pillowcase instead.

If you're thinking about making one of these bags, do.  You'll be soooo happy you did.

Sappamama- I second I saw your bag I was like OMG! that's a steno keyboard!  Ack!  I didn't expect that at all, lol.  Love that bag.  (BTW, I've been in court reporting school for almost 3 years, at around 200 wpm and hoping to pass the state exam in September.)

TreeTree, a future CR, hunh?  Yay for you.  The CR field is so obscure, unless you're in it.  My bg is English; I teach grammar at my school.  I knew nothing about the field before I got the job but now I find it really interesting.

Thank you for the compliment.  The steno images weren't easy to come by.

Good luck with your studies!  I hope you find yourself earning big bucks soon.  If you want a copy of the keyboard patch, just PM me.

This is the best bag! I just did it maybe 30 mins. tops. 
Thankyou so much!
