Always Be Making
I've barely started this little blog, and my wishlist of projects is growing by the second. My brain is spinning with so many new ideas, I hardly know where to start. What is it about the idea of "new beginnings" that is so addicting? I love starting projects—I just need to get better at finishing them!
Today I worked on some initial sketches for a bag design, and started sewing up prototypes. I've made a few tote bags in my day, so I want to try and make this one a little more functional and unique than a typical tote. The first proto was a bust, but it should come together soon. I'm pushing myself to try some new shapes, and figuring out how to sew them can be a challenge...but that is half the fun!
I also got some canvas swatches in the mail today which look amazing and should make a beautiful bag. All the pieces of this project are starting to come together. I have some awesome heat pressed vinyl designs that will go on the front of the bags, and maybe a few other little surprises tucked inside too.
