mindy and i are gradually easing into doing some product lines with fabric. i mostly make pop images, and they apply well to wearables and accessories. so i'm jumping in with some bags. i've designed 2 basic patterns of a robot head and a cat head clutch/small bag.
i put together my test robot clutch today. the first one is always time consuming because i have no idea what i'm doing and have to develop the method in the process. i'm not doing anything advanced, just some simple shapes to match my imagery.
i hand printed each piece with a collection of square and rectangle blocks, then added in some details like eyes and a diamond plate pattern. i stitched around all the shapes and spaces to 'quilt' the top layer of fabric to the liner pattern piece. then i assembled it.
i'm hoping that in the future these can be created pretty easily and sold for a reasonable price. they are fun and should be affordable.
