I'll be honest I did these last summer, but the pictures have been sitting on my hard drive unloved since. I think it's about time to share!

This was a stained ivory bag from my grandma (aren't they the best?) with a gold chain hideous strap. I dyed it my favorite color, then gave it a yarn and leather strap that I don't trust, haha. But this bag is super cool for those wanna be classy days. Now I just need to mod the purse I actually use every day!

This is my little camera bag. It was black and not something I every carried around unless I was adventuring outside with no where else to put it. I cut off some stuff, then painfully hand sewed a layer of pink mesh and a layer of amy butler loveliness. I also added ribbon and flowers on the front, AND added a pocked on the back! It holds my extra battery(and business card), and there is a pocket inside for memory cards. Also the ugly strap got hacked off and I made some old belt and more ribbon braided madness. This bag was the perfect size for my old camera, but now I have a a slightly larger cam with a neckstrap that only fits this bag when neatly folded. So it's unused ='(

Ooh, nice job decorating. What are the white dots on the first bag?

Those are super cute!  
I have to say though, since my eyes are not the greatest, when I saw the icon-picture in the "Newest Projects" deal, I thought it was a picture of some octopus tentacles!  It totally freaked me out!  My heart jumped a little bit. Lol.

Needless to say, I felt pretty silly when I realize it was just a super awesome handbag.  Nothing to be scared of!    Cheesy
