Cheshire Cat Messenger Bag by IceandSnow Cheshire Cat Messenger Bag by IceandSnow

This bag is for sale for $50 + shipping (which should be between $2 and $5 depending on where you live)

EDIT: it has been bought! If you'd like to commission me for a bag of your own, check out the prices here. They're cheaper than this one if there's less sewing involved: [link]



It's kinda sad for me to give it up after all the time I spent on it, but that's art I suppose! xD

but seriously... this thing took FOREVER. O__________O

I didn't make the bag, but it started as a blank, black bag. (TONGUE TWISTER!)

huhuu anyway, the design on the front is painted on in acrylic fabric paint, and as you can see, is very metallic/SHINY. :0

There are 5 buttons sewn on the front, one on each side, and two for the eyes of the cheshire cat. All buttons are sewn AND glued, so those suckers aint coming off. xD

And probably the most time-consuming part of this project was sewing on the cheshire cat head on the part under the outer flap. CHECK OUT THAT STITCHWORK ON THE INSIDE! It took me 3 movies worth of time to sew it on. xD (Harry Potter 4, Jurassic Park, and Coraline. ;D)...okay, I was watching them too, so not continuous time, but... you get the idea.
It too is glued and sewn, so it shouldn't come off. The head is made of fleece and the face/stripes are painted on in acrylic paint.

And in case you're not familiar with the quote, "We're all mad here" is said by the Cheshire cat himself. C:

Hopefully you can get a good idea of the size from the picture of me wearing it, I can't find a ruler at the moment, URGHH! xD
anddd it closes by velcro.


I hope you guys like it! :D

kinda different from the usual, eh? I've been in SUCH a sewing mood lately, for the first time in my life. I'm working on a plushie too, which I guess will be the prototype for others if I end up having the patience to take plushie commissions...




Anyhoo, download to view the fullsize!

Sadly, I won't be doing more of these for a while... That was the one and only, and it was sold back in the summer when I made it. I'm debating whether I'll continue doing CUSTOM bags, simply because they're a lot more work than what I'm charging for them.
But ummmmm, I will probably be making more bags of SOME kind, I just need to figure out how I'm going to make this easier to do and mass produce somehow.

Aghh, these bags are in high demand, I'm afraid. I'm going to have to find a way of better mass-producing them, or raising the price for completely hand made ones, because they take forever to make. D:
Anyhoo, I won't be taking commissions again until this summer.

If you don't mind telling me, what kind of paint did you use on this bag, and do you think that kind would work on other things say a pair of converse?
Reply
:iconiceandsnow:
IceandSnow Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2009
I used acrylic paint. I've seen other people paint on converse with acrylic paint before, so it must work well. They're made out of canvas, which acrylic is made for pretty much. :]
