Photo Bag Gets Chic

I received this as a gift after I had my first sweet lil' bundle of baby.  I was supposed to put my cute, ever so darling photos in the pouches of the "brag bag" but never got around to it, and it got stuffed into the back of my oh-so-organized closet.  (shya right!)  I pulled it out the other day and decided I wasn't sure it if was cheesy or not and then decided it was the ultimate bag with TONS of room, a side for me, and a side for kids... Just had to do something with it - but photos just weren't quite my style.
I went digging through my scrapbook paper and found this black and white paper pack and found a pattern I really liked.  I cut them into 4x6 pieces and used them instead of photos.
Then I found some black and white stretchy fabric that I literally bought 14 years ago for my mom to make me a dress with but since it never happened I have a whole lot of this stuff.  I cut a looooong strip of it and tied one end in a knot and hot glued it in the middle of the bag.  
Then loosley twisted it around and around, hot gluing all the while, until I had a large fabric rosette.
And now I have a bag that hangs from my shoulder and makes me feel quite snazzy as I meander the isles of Wal Mart . :)
