Starting to work along a theme, getting ready to focus for my senior year. Working with recycled materials in grey/near grey tones and working with color in hidden areas (insides, linings, ect)

Bag is made from pieces 1 pair of French army boots, 1 Dutch army blanket, 1 leather belt, 1 shuttle of old weaving wool, recovered crewel wool, linen, and black button hole thread.






Added another angle--it doesn't really have a front or sides, it's sort of cylindrical.



Techniques included herringbone, cable, feather stitching, friendship bracelet techniques (for the side split) and cording.

It looks like it's really nice, but I can't tell if any of those pictures is a head on shot.  Huh

I think it's wonderful.  I like things that are made from other things, and this is amazing.  Great work.

I have to say this is by far the single most beautiful and slightly quirky bag I have ever seen!
I love everything about it and the fact everything is recycled, shows you how far you could really take things.
This rocks!
Hope to see more of your work here!!!

I really like this, it is unique but still attractive.  I would expect to see it in a high end store selling for like 500 dollars!! Epic and amazing, I would feel honored to own that purse.  Good job and good luck Cheesy
