This thing just kept morphing all afternoon until it turned into this:  "Hot Pants Valentino Tote Bag"  Don't ask me why 'hot pants' came into my mind, other than the back of the bag really does look like a pair of pants.  HA!  Well, this is totally different still from the others, so we'll see if it flies.

Here's Val taking a little sunbath.

Here's Val's behind - just ready to hold something special.

Just another view to show her pleated side gussets.

I could not for the LIFE of me get a good picture of the guts. But this one is padded good enough you could carry eggs in it.

Turned the logo into a sort of luggage tag and dangled a gold purse charm that has Swarovski crystals on it from the same ring.
This one was very difficult only because of the vinyl not being as pliable as some.  It's very tall and actually gets more slender as it comes up to the top - fairly feminine I'm thinking.  Has a magnet inside for closure.  Absolutely NOTHING would fall out of this!  Hope you find a good home, Hot Pants Valentino!  :)
 
 
Had a rough start on this one yesterday, and turning it right side out after forming it into a box was probably the hardest one I have done to date.  Sort of wanted to punch it.  :)  But that certainly wouldn't have gotten the job done.  So here is how it sits this morning with hopefully a better ending to it later today.  The difficult part is at least completed, and the fun and bling can begin!

The front......... (laying on the ironing board)

Threw a package in this pic so you could see the back has a HUGE outside pocket on it.

Doesn't know how to stand up straight yet, but we'll get 'er trained by end of day.

A really BAD picture of the black and gold brocade that will be the lining. Guess I got in a hurry with the camera.
Get a little creative today and think outside the box!
 
 
Here is the next project on the drawing board.  Just a shot of the Valentino vinyl banner that's been getting designed in my head for over a week.  Hopefully this one will turn out very posh and sophisticated.  There is a black and gold satin brocade that was purchased especially for this bag's lining.  I really hope my head isn't trying to overachieve on this one.  So it's just GOT to be next in line and get it out of my brain.  HA!
