this is my first post
and so, something a bit special (to me!)
i've FINALY finished this goram project!
This project is made from soda cans, all rubicon
i love the bright colors, also, bit of a fruit obsessive, so love rubicon.
the noise it makes is a little annoying, but i dont mind coz i love how it looks
the white canvas is from an old (and broken) canvas wardrobe, the straps came on some blankets, so SUPER recycled/reused
Also, the only thing i had to make the bottom stiff was some cardboard, so i wrapped two bits of card in duct tape (so they'd be a bit waterproof in case the bag ever gets wet, im EXTREMELY clumsy) and then put them inside the lining.
heres a closer look for the details, the stitching isnt perfect, but this project was a PAIN in the ARSE!
Sewing the cans greatly displeased my sewing machine and it got mad! luckily my friends dad came and fixed it for me
i was never really 100% sure what i was doing with this project which led to stupid mistakes, like not sewing the handles on before i started attaching the cans, thus the straps had to be hand stitched.
i think the reason it took me so long is that there where so many unknowns i just kept putting it off...
anyways, all done now, and proud of myself even though its not perfect
