Description

My husband is an aspiring graphic artist/layout designer. He is almost done with his degree and needs a way to store and maintain his finished projects. So I attempted to make him an art portfolio. I struggled with a zipper and instead adapted to a system of buttons and elastic to keep it closed. It has cardboard for structure and can also stay propped open as a means of presenting the contents. It still needs a strap or handle… :)

Material Notes

black cotton, red silk, cardboard (for structure), and hair elastics/buttons for closure

    Very Cool!! Well done! Have you considered a large black leather belt (thrift store… about $1) for a strap (it could support the weight of the art inside)? Hubby must be so proud! :)
