Following on from the successful bespoke charger bags that I created
And the handbag that accompanied the Inspire by Kim dress…
I decided to develop a beauty bags concept. I first create a boxed unlined beauty bag from a repeat pattern fabric that I had created.
I then decided to take my Ice Cream Paper Picture and heat press it onto satin to make panels for a bag.
I decided that a main panel on the front with a repeat pattern design on the back panel might work nicely. So I made the pattern elements and then created the pattern digitally in my favourite app Pixelmator. As learned in Jessica Swift’s online course Pattern Camp.
I printed out the designs onto heat fuseable paper then ironed them onto fabric and sewed a fully lined (invisible seam) bag on my fabulous Bernina machine.
And finally, for now, I made a bag from satin featuring a design I created in printmaking and digitally. The bag is also fully lined with hidden seams and is machine embroidered.
This one feels quality and I’m proud of it. The colours and design work well.
I adapted two online instructions from a website and YouTube tutorial to make the bag.
The bags are a key part of the final major project for my art Foundation course, and I have my first ‘selling to the public’ event next month.
Thanks so much for viewing this feature, you’re invited to stay a while and take a look around. I hope you enjoy your ‘Inspire’ time.
