Hey everyone!

I'm studying Textiles in school & thought I would share with you what I created for my final projects in April. Everything was drawn, silkscreened, & sewn by me.

Sorry for the links, guys -- new account!


Two out of the four tote bags I made. The navy blue one is made from organic linen (I ran out of material for the straps! I'll have to add those later) & the red one is unbleached cotton muslin. The lining is actually a navy cotton with a discharged pattern, but unfortunately I don't have a photo just now. The other two totes I made were in reverse colours.

Fabric brooches! I used polyester filling on the inside, & "found" fabrics for the backings with some bar pins.

A close-up of the nautical pattern I designed for this project.

There are a couple other images at this blog post that I hadn't uploaded to flickr, so feel free to take a look!

Thanks for looking!

Your designs are so crisp and clean...and I like how you used them in a practical way by making the totes!
