Semi-structured bag

Added Aug 30, 2007

Plainfield, New ...






I needed a bag, i love my totes, but they have no real structure to them and no pockets. SURE i could add pockets, but I figured it would be fun to make my own pattern and my own bag.

THIS IS A PROTOTYPE!!! i was on allergy meds last night, so the lining is a bit big for the bag. i will fix that this weekend.

Material Notes

Kudos to the KnollTextiles department for suppling me with the goodies i used.
For the outside layer i used Gibson, the lining was Empire Stripe, the pockets Ultrasuede, and the yo-yo flowers were Moto ( in three different colors)…since i had noooooo interface ( hence the semi structed-ness) at the bottom i inserted a piece of Spinneybeck Leather and two dryer sheets ( when heated they adhere to fabric and become some sort of no frills interface.





KnollTextiles for the fabric.

Luca my dog for not interrupting me.

    love the fabric choice— neat tip about the dryer sheets too! i bet they keep the bag smelling fresh as well ;)
