I am trying to make my mum a bag that is not novelty but has guinea pigs as a main theme. I know the style of the bag that I will make but am stuck on the material. Ideally, I wanted to buy some material with guinea pigs on but I can't find anything in the UK stores or the US online stores!! So any ideas on what I could do or use?

The bag will be a simple oblong bag with a single small shoulder strap attached with silver rings (or copper depending on the final materials shade) and over flap covering the top of the bag, locking with a magnetic notion or a buckle (havent quite decided...I may just use the buckle as a decorative). I was thinking of using a plain looking material and perhaps using fabric paint, just paint her guinea pigs on the front...but I'm not keen on that idea, although if it was done well it would look great!

Anyway, if you guys have any other suggestions about what I could do, that would be most helpful so thanks in advance Smiley

Dont worry about replying as I've (reluctantly) decided not to use guinea pigs on the bag. I've just found some interesting fabric to use instead.

Well I see that you said you are going a different route and don't need guinea pig ideas now but what about embroidering a basic guinea pig?  Or applique.
