Here it is!

Well, I can proudly show off this weekends project- finished!

Despite all the best help....

I worked my machines hard

Didn't feel defeated when supplies weren't what I wanted (I'd been 'hoarding' this laptop bag forever for the strap, only to find it leather and already broken etc)
so have some sexy pockets to show off
a front one as well
Colour co-ordinated velcro and binding (not one item was bought especially for this bag)
Some favourite fabrics getting used (couldn't use the strap, but definitely the hardware!)
such a great way to show of this beautiful work someone did, and I have a great bag, custom made for.....MOI!

What are you waiting for?

You can be really proud of yourself. Great to see work that does not involve heaps of money spent. And this is also a tribute also to the original artist. Cherrie

Now thats the perfect recycling job! Don't those birdies look amazing against the pink fabric. Now all you need is a laptop!
