April 2017

…knot bags this time, with harris tweed and scraps of upholstery weight fabric. Basically there is a long and a short handle, and the long passed through the short to pull the bag closed. I’m really drawn to the economy of the design, no pockets, zippers, poppers, buttons, just one basic shape, fully lined. The construction is a little strange because of the shape and is well described here at The Chilly Dog, although I made my own pattern. I quite like the idea of making more of these, but I think I’ll live with these three for a while first  and see how I might next adapt them.

Maybe a Japanese apron next …
