She knows the local music scene. She has an appreciation for indie rock, which she’s evidenced by taking me to both Metric and Dinosaur Jr. concerts. She changes her hair color regularly and runs a photography business on the side. (Yes, she took this header photo.)
Last year she accompanied a group of teen designers on a trip to Jerusalem as part of the powerful and innovative Design Diaries International museum-exchange program.
So I was thrilled when she agreed to be a bag tester for me. I’ve been dreaming of expanding my crafting hobby into some sort of side gig of by own, and she signed right up to help me out. The plan: She’d give me design parameters, I’d make a bag for her at cost, and she’d give me feedback.
Her wish list: a) incorporate her fave color purple, b) lots of pockets, c) a 60’s vibe, and d) a mix of patterns that look like they don’t go together but end up working. This final request made me want to do the happy dance.
I love working with upholstery fabrics, so I hit the rolls at my local fabric store. And here’s the result. What’s on your bag wish list?
