    Yeah they are a lot of work but once you get going and get the hang of it you can get them done pretty quick. I have to do about 15 bags. I have 10 done right now. I forgot my camera at work today so I will post them tonight in another thread for the directions...it is just like embrodery but you use a bead needle and use beads in addition to the thread!

          This is a great thread. Thanks for starting it. Anybody find any of those cheap (inexpensive) drawstring backpacks. I think my guest can take them on the excursions. And now I have to go scout out all my target stores for those books. Thanks again.

                  Thanks for the links and info. I orderd mine yesterday! I love the beading work and may try to do some while I watch tv. At least that I way I won't feel as guilty about sitting around all night on the couch. :)

                    Those are great bags and so cheap! I plan on using them too. I am just overwhelmed at all of the info on this site, and so much that I would have never thought of! Thanks!

                      so i had been thinking about getting these canvas totes but just couldn't pull the trigger. i don't really like how "sack-like" these bags are and i really didn't want to iron anything on...

                      so i decided to risk it and order the non-woven totes from cheaptotes.com and i am sooooo impressed. they have structure to them with an actual bottom. i got them in orange and white. the colors on the site are awful which is part of what made me nervous. but seriously both colors are really bright and vibrant. so i definately recommend these as an alternative to the canvas. if anyone is interested and would like me to take a pic i can.
