Blog #29

I've made and designed my very first messenger bag using my fabrics Golden Sea Serpent and Turquoise Dragon Skin. The black parts of the bag are made from a mystery fabric that my mom bought when she was out helping a friend look for a wedding dress.

It was a bit harder than I imagined designing a messenger bag around two 8"x8" swatches of fabric. My design-as-you-go philosophy spread out the project throughout the week, which was nice since it wasn't as stressful as sitting down and making everything work out on paper.
