The video is very small because of the side is filled up with people chatting about the craft, and then I can't hear all she is saying, her voice comes and goes. I would really love to make one of these, but only if I can get written instructions. I'm sorry for the complaining, BUT I have a lot of eye problems, can't even see my own videos well.

I can't wait to try this! I already got my supplies some time ago. Just need to take the time to do it.

Wow...great idea! Very nice. I am new to this sight, please, where do I purchase the products you use in demonstrations? Thanks, can hardly wait to try. Lin

I agree with everyone. Need written supplies needed for this project. What kind of gel medium. Also how did you attach the handle to the bag?

The idea for the bag is good...but you need a better quality video and written instructions.

Thanks for sharing a great project. I get it. I understood what you said and it's one of those projects that calls for a leap of faith. Magazine cuts, old jeans or placemats, gel medium and then play. A pattern would be wicked hard to do since there are so many things you can make this bag out of. Maybe a supply list would be enough for me. I have at least 3 different types of gel medium to try. Wupieee

I loved it. And I did not have trouble with the sound at all. I believe she said she used Earthbase Gel Medium. I will definitely try it.
