I've also been quite busy in the studio. Most recently I have been working on some smallish messenger totes that I am completely in love with. I had made a few in other designs with some vintage fabric patches but then I saw the Fall '09 Stitch Magazine cover and just about flipped! Not only did I love the tote on the cover, it was from Ayumi of Pink Penguin. I knew that she had been asked to feature a project but the cover is quite the accomplishment. How great is that? Congratulations Ayumi!
This project was the infusion of my mini-messenger and her tote, and I can't wait to use this. I used a mustard colored cotton/linen blend for the body and used vintage and linen for the strippy patches. I made the adjustable black strap from linen too.
And here is my new label with many thanks to Sarah of The Small Object whom I had the privilege of meeting (albeit briefly) at the Renegade Craft Fair Chicago. She is an amazing designer, check her out!
I hope to share more really soon......until then...
