new, different, exciting

all true about my new desk : )

but also apply to how I feel about lots of new stuff I’m working on, or another example would be a commission I recently finished : ) The recipient now has the bag, so I can show you some nice images!

The brief was to make a bag for a man, which was easy to use, adjustable strap, padded, with pockets, and not fussy, no overwrought detailing! Also the colours to use were olive green, and brown if possible : ) But I did want to include some pattern, so I used some of the Mid West Modern range by Amy Butler for the lining,

It has a magnetic clasp to keep it shut, and has in the main body of the bag three pockets.

On the outside of the bag it has a zipped part,

which is also line in the lovely Martini fabric : ) It has come together really well, and both the person who commissioned it, and the recipient of the bag are really happy, always a great result!

I don’t think I will be making this bag normally, but I will accept commissions for it, so if you are interested, just drop me a line, and we can go from there!

Hope you are having a great weekend, I’ll blog more about ours tomorrow!
