I borrowed some fabric sheets from my Mom and started following the instructions. (See EQ Printables Inject Fabric Sheets for those details.) However, I started to worry abou the Copic markers getting wet or even heated with the iron so I didn't make it very far with the instructions. I can say that the iron appears to do nothing to the Copic markers. I'll have to try water at a different time.
Here's a detailed shot of the fabric and you can see how I'm coloring directly onto the fabric. There are no transfer sheets involved and because it was fabric, I had to go easy with the markers. (Holding my breath was a contributing factor!)
The size of the handbag is small but I've found several items that conveniently fit in it! It was intended as a Valentines gift so a a regular size bag of Hershey's Chocolate Kisses fit nicely. However, I've also discovered that a travel size baby wipe container plus one or two diapers will also fit - great for church or a short babysitting trip. And lastly, my youngest daughter demonstrated that her baby doll fits perfectly and is completely content to stay there! LOL!
When sewing my handbags, I like to tuck and sew the corners slightly so the bag will stand upright on it's own. I'm sure there is a fancy trick to doing it so the seem doesn't show but I usually do this task very last just before turning the bag right-side out. Below is a picture of the empty handbag laying down next to the Hershey's candy bag for scale.

Did you know? The People's Republic of China (PRC), commonly known as China, is the most populous state in the world with over 1.3 billion people, approximately 20% of the world's population. The ancient Chinese civilization—one of the world's earliest—flourished in the fertile basin of the Yellow River which flows through the North China Plain. For more than 6,000 years, China's political system was based on hereditary monarchies (also known as dynasties). The first of these dynasties was the Xia (approx 2000BC) and the last dynasty, the Qing, ended in 1911 with the founding of the Republic of China.
