I am so excited to share this beautiful bag. I had a lot of fun with all the details in it as well. If you've seen the new Star Trek Discovery series, you will recognize the inspiration in a heartbeat.
The gold accents on the panels are actually done with a mirror foil HTV on a coordinating blue cotton and are then sewn to the pattern pieces prior to construction. I made the designs using photoshop and my Silhouette Cameo. They are done to mimic the look of the Captain's uniform, complete with the delta side pieces, the rank strips on the "shoulders" and the stitching on the "shoulder side". I had a lot of fun researching the details on this one and trying to incorporate them into the bag.
The bag is entirely vinyl with a fun blue and gold outer space looking lining. Sewn entirely on my vintage 1953 Singer 201-2.
This one is going to a very dear friend who LOVES Star Trek.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

It's neat how this is not overtly Star Trek-y so you can use it anywhere!

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Very elegant!  So subtly Star Trek-y that you could almost miss it!
