Ok, finally a Monster on Etsy!
I’ve been working on commission work alot lately, but things have started to slow down a bit with the big move pending. Sooooo… I got to work on my new Military Monster for Etsy. This bag was introduced almost a month ago and now, its finally heading over to the shop. Its absolutely huge and has 9 big pockets. Perfect for baby items, beach items, purse items, over night items. … Heck, I’m pretty sure you could pack a picnic for a family of 5 in there!… Anyway, I’m already thinking about possibly writing a pattern for it. The construction is fat quarter friendly, and who doesn’t love fat quarter bundles??
Yes, I had to pick which fabric bin I was going to keep out, for the big move. It ended up being the Heather Bailey fabric bin. So yes, the new Monster is one pair of military BDU pants and 3 different Heather Bailey prints from her Fresh Cut line for Free Spirit.
I also used a buttery ivory grosgrain ribbon on the nylon handles. Boy, I hope I can find more of that nylon handle stuff when I get back to America. I bought a bunch here, but his bag uses close to 3.5 yds, for each bag. I was inspired to do a bottoms-up photo by a lady over on flickr. The photo on flickr by the other person was much better than mine, but still a nice idea so I thought I’d add it.
