My newest creations have been satchels and messenger bags. It has been really fun to create with one my favorite "mascots", the tiny bird, as you can see on these bags. I started off with the one to the left, because it was super spunky, it reminded me of my friend Brooke, who we argue has color coordinations that I would never pick ;) so,, I made her a bag that was ( i thought, at least) mixing colors that were fun and young, just like her!
The messenger bag to the right was made out of a big skirt, reinforced by some thick cloth, silvery blue on the inside. I love to reuse fabric, so I try to make that a huge point to look through all my garments, as I am color coordinating with other fabric. It's a fun challenge!
As you can see, I have started stitching my name, Prayergrove, in cursive on my bags... I thought it was a nice, homemade touch!
