LMYR bag

I made this for my Dad for father's day. I bought some of this transparent stuff (I don't know what it's called), and I zigzag-stitched in onto the top of the bag. Then I put these letters on. (I used a font and printed it out REALLY BIG and used those as my patterns for the letters and then top-stitched those on to the black fabric.)

The picture of my parents is actually one I had to manipulate in photoshop. Franny was in between them in the picture and she's making a weird face, but my parents look really good in the picture. I thought it would be fun to take Franny out and have a cute picture of my mom and dad that was recent and that he had never seen, at least like this.

Truth is, I stink at photoshop. But I'll let you be the judge. This is the original:

LMYR is from the song "Long May You Run" by Neil Young. My Dad signs all his cards to me with LMYR at the end. We're both big Neil Young fans.
