A bag! I would make a bag. A highly structured bag. I’ve had a stash of rigid stabilizer on hand for months because I’ve dying to try a bag that holds its own shape. So I’d settled on the idea and would actually get to challenge myself on two fronts – new technique and new medium.
I created an envelope bucket bag with a magnetic snap closure. The handle is two foliage stems formed, wrapped, and bound with brown ribbon and attached to the bag with D-rings. I think it not says nature, but really captures my essence as well. For those who don’t know me, Autumn is the time of year I live for. I constantly lament that there isn’t anywhere in the world that has perpetual Autumn (otherwise I’d live there). Crisp air, pumpkin pie, cinnamon, spice, squash soup, fires in the fireplace, lit candles everywhere – this is my comfort.
So here is my challenge submission: Autumn Delight
It is a one-of-a-kind creation and is for sale in my Etsy shop. Voting will be open to the public on September 2nd for one week on the team blog. Please view all the submissions and if you truly like mine – vote for me! It was a pleasure participating in this challenge and I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about it.
