Bio Haz Laptop Bag & Beaded Zipper Pull

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I added a side grab handle for leverage to zip open the bag. The zipper pull contains some of the red/purple/orange polymer beads I made, and strung on a black cord "shoe string" and embellished a bit more with some seed beads, and brass charms from my jewerly junk drawer. Fun look, and makes the zipper ride like a roller coaster. Wheeeee! I added red, yellow, and purple buttons for contrast, and red embroidery floss running stitches around the pockets. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take time to have a cup of tea--especially when you stick yourself with a pins several times in a row. I must have been in quite a flurry of excitement putting this laptop together. Scraped myself good with pins today. I had three cups of tea!
