It is pretty intimidating to see what others have made in the past, but I felt up to the challenge. Based on the interests of my swap partner, I decided to make a bag based on quotes from some of her favorite 80's movies. The idea for the finished product was slow going, but I started with photo transfer paper and the quotes.
Once I transferred the images to the fabric, I framed it with a contrasting fabric. To add more interest, I decided to hand embroider accents around the quotes and along the frame. I think they are in keeping with the feel of the 80's, don't you think?
Finally, for one more cute detail, I added one more 80's quote inside the pocket for chuckles. SAVE FERRIS!
It would be like totally awesome to the max if my partner thinks this is bodacious fer sure! What do you think?
