My linen bags turned out so well. I used a gray zipper, which contrasts nicely with the khaki of the linen and emphasizes the gray image outline. I did damage the red bag a little bit when I was turning it out, so I’ll have to keep it for myself. Oh, darn.
While sewing my bags this afternoon, I realized that my projects of the last two weeks have combined so much of my crafting and artistic experience – silkscreened items featuring my illustrations, notebooks that use the bookbinding skills I’d so long neglected, bags that utilize my sewing abilities. It was all very unconscious on my part. The creative process has been so organic for me lately.
These bags are available here.
