I printed it out and traced onto Bondaweb, simplifying some of the detail. The bikini strings were too fine to add in so I hand stitched on some twine. I bought a lovely bag pattern at Festival of Quilts from a lovely lady on the Monkey Buttons stand, it's called African Basket. I strip pieced the background and yes, all the panels are different and the stripes were not meant to match up! I put together my applique image on one of the panels and followed the pattern for the bag which was straightforward to make. It's ages since I've sewn anything other than a card, what do you think of my Phindy bag?
I'm entering my bag for the following challenges:

Die Cut Dreams - make a gift box or bag
My Craft Spot - sewing somewhere on your project - yup!
Victorine Originals - summer
Just some lines - anything but a card
Secret Crafter - in the sea
Totally Papercrafts - not a card
Charisma Cards - anything goes
Simon Says - anything goes hop
