More of The Chica Bag

I worked on my Crafty Chica bag all day yesterday.  Layering the paint to get solid bright colors over that turquoise fabric took forever, but once I was finished with that I couldn’t wait to start embellishing!  I even went outside to take a “well lit, non blurry” photo for you to see.chica bag progress 6 I am still finishing the lettering and the buttons on the banner.  I also have to finish the lettering on the back piece, I might even have time to work on the lining.  Then I will be able to stitch it all together.  I’m sure by the end of the week everyone will be sick of seeing this bag, but I can’t help it, I’m obsessed.  See the other entries on Flickr.

This is looking awesome! I like your blog header, too.

OMG, that is so cool!

So...I know this is a pretty labor intensive project, but I have to know if you're making one for yourself and that's the end of it? Or are you thinking of making more for sale?

Thanks Julie and Pam, it was a labor of love.

Pam, I would love to make a few to sell, but I'm afraid that the price I would need to have would be to high. I am working on a more streamlined process, I think learning how to screen print would help. I don't want to lose the uniqueness of the hand painting though, if you have any suggestions I would love to hear them :)
