Story time. I have a backpack that I take with me to places but its so well backpack it's chunky and not good for the "only a few items" kind of day so I found this bag: http://www.hottopic.com/product/dc-comics-batman-harley-quinn-logo-hobo-bag/10244395.html#start=31However not only is it sold out but it's expensive as heck for my no job working at the library for my mom pay I get.  I then stumbled upon this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8Mt5jFbk1Q which made me go "PERFECT!"

 

So now the delema and why I want to ask if anyone else has done this

how do you chose what fabrics to use?

Espically as a little I'm having a hard time decideing how "muture" I want this bag or even what fandom to do it in

so many choices -_- advice?

Looks like a pretty easy bag. I've sewn a few purses for myself before. I normally find 1 fabric that I love and just have to have as my main one then find coordinates. I found one before that was a purple multi animal print that i paired with a few solid colors so my print popped.

 

What were some of your ideas?

Well I liked these colors

https://www.fabric.com/buy/0350589/essential-gems-sapphire-sky-25-strips

but wouldn't know where to find them both cheaper and in the size I'd want (which is a charms square size 5 by 5)

 

was thinking those paired with any of these

And for a  pod touch case any of these

As of right now I don't even know where to get these kinds of fabrics but I'd love to make a purple and blue bag with some kind of geekness to it or stars

Fabric.com is a good place for high quality fabric at a decent price. Hard to find charm squares in those prints but I found something similar to the first two. http://www.fatquartershop.com/the-grape-escape-essential-5-karat-gems

I also pick some fabric to go with two of those prints.
