Dance Bag

I am happy to say that I think my bag creations are progressively looking more and more professional. By that I mean it's higher quality and people are surprised when I say that I made it. However, though this bag is better quality than most of my other handmade bags, it didn't cost me a thing. That's right, I didn't have to buy any thing to finish it.
I made the body of the bag out of some old curtains, it's a heavish weight and I'm planning to make a few totes out of it as well for birthday presents(all of my friends have birthdays in July and August so I'm wracking my brain to figure out what to make them all).
The zipper was one of the billion zippers that a relative gave us a long time ago.

Zig zag patches just for fun.
Now, the rings are actually bangles that I thrifted a long time ago. I very excited about that idea because I couldn't find anything that would work, I even looked at Joann's for some but I couldn't find any. I also wasn't sure if the bracelets would hold up okay, but so far they've held two books, character shoes, and lots of other dance clothes and did fine.

Shown here is some needle lace I was experimenting with a while ago, I only did it one one side.

Please tell me what you think!
Hope you're all have a wonderful week.
