Bag of Holding

This was my very first crafting/sewing project when I returned from Canada, sewn on my first sewing machine (the now-deceased Singer bought for $5 at the St Peter's Rotary Jumble Sale). It's a totally nerdly concept, based on the Dungeons and Dragons
Bag of Holding. I cut the letters out of felt, using the highly technological 'felt on computer screen' tracing technique used for the kanji on Tom's dice bag. I embroidered the letters on light wale corduroy first, then sewed the bag together. It has awesome red skull and crossbones lining with a covered base insert. I was pretty proud of it at the time, and it's still in use, so that has to count as a win, right?
