This project is from my study at CIT, studying Clothing Production.
The first project was for us to use the skills we had learnt about sewing and using an industrial sewing machine. Some of the class made tote bags, and the rest of us had to make tool rolls, I changed my roll into a tool belt. Much more useful for me :)
The fabrics on the pocket are scraps of my own designed digitally printed fabric left over from my Honours Project last year
“I decided the plain white thumbtacks on my bulletin board needed to be cuter. And by cuter, I mean oranger. I put a small piece of washi tape on each pushpin, smoothed out any fine wrinkles with my thumbnail, and trimmed around the edges with a sharp scissors. Cuter!”
I love the blog How about Orange!!! such a cute blog, with great ideas and activities :)
Here are a few process photos from making the bag.
This reversible tote bag was made from some fabric scraps I had left over from my digitally printed cotton drill. The cotton drill provided a nice sturdy fabric to create the bag, using the drill the bag stands up by itself with no interfacing.
I would like to make more of these bags in a few different sizes to put for sale on my online shop
