My Creative Space
My creative space is all about the works in progress at the moment....
I have a custom order currently in progress for another camera bag. I love being able to take the initial drawing, and sit down at my desk to work out the cutting dimensions (including seam allowances) and decide how to cut the fabric so that the construction goes smoothly (or sometimes not so smoothly).
Even though I've only had one semester of formal design training many many moons ago, I'm still really interested in construction, and the way that things fit together. Maybe that's where my interest in manufacturing came from all those years ago?
So far, this one is going right to plan..... it has nice sturdy interfacing all over, some extra in the base, and medium heavy fusible wadding over the top of that. I just need to work on sewing on half of the closure, so that I can then begin constructing the outer (the extra fun bit where I get to see if it works)!
For much more of this weeks creativity, pop on over and visit Kirsty!
