Corina's Denim Bag

I made another denim bag out of a girl's overall dress.  
This time I made it for my sister Corina.  
It's basically the same bag as the Chic Denim Bag but with slight differences to make it a unique bag for my sister.

Here is what the dress looked like before it took on the role of a bag. 
I loved the bib of the dress.  It made a nice pocket.
I also made a belt to match the inside.  
I used the metal hardware (D ring?) from the dress for this.
There were two instances where I could not get my sewing machine needle to go through; I broke 3 needles trying.  So I used heavy duty hot glue instead.   
I used it here ...
and here. I stitched the strap with the red thread to give it the "sewn" look but then hot glued it to the bag. You can't tell that it's glued on. 
I didn't have to do anything to the straps; they are already attached on the back.
Now, I got to go and make the Racheal Bag...yeah, my other sister wants on too.
