I LOVE LOVE LOVE this newest bag!  It was a commission for a friend who needed a purse to go with their Batgirl costume at Dragon Con.  We went back and forth and I was given creative freedom to create this.  Seeing as they already own 2 of my bag and several accessories, they knew something awesome was bound to happen.  This is the Swoon Rosie pattern and it was my first time making it.  The pattern looked perfect for what I needed, so I dove right in.  I had to create the bat from Pellon 808 backed yellow cotton fabric with HTV heat pressed on in gold and yellow.  That was then appliqued onto the front flap by hand cranking my machine.
I give you, the batgirl purse you didn't even know you needed or wanted!

I saw the thumbnail and automatically thought it must be one of your creations. This is amazing. It definitely makes your skills and creativity shine.

You're right - I didn't know I needed this until I saw it!  Shocked  What do you use for the glittery vinyl bits?  I've tried a clear iron-on PVC and it wasn't very satisfactory for something like this - would love some (glittery!) alternatives.  Smiley  Thanks!
