Here’s a sneak preview of a design I’m working on for my next bag workshop – I’m planning to make this into a proper pattern as per the Trapeze tote. It’s another pretty simple style, but should work well in lots of different fabrics and would easily lend itself to adaptation.
As usual, I did everything you’re not supposed to and designed it as I went along, rather than working up a toile version. I find this method works for me, but does involve a fair amount of sighing, a little bit of mild swearing and quite a bit of unpicking. I never realised how much I talk to myself before but was working on this at the weekend with Mr Loulabelle in the next room and he’s been looking at me very strangely ever since.
