Hello Again! These past few weeks I have been working on refining my textile samples, (which you might of seen on instagram) and applying these onto visualizations, playing with various compositions to decide what kidswear accessories I will be making! (How exciting!)
After creating 50 of these (eek) I decided on the following samples ^
These were edited around however when I completed my toile and decided on the measurements. I measured the bag up against a children's mannequin so I could get an accurate size. I created my own pattern and created a toile using calico. This is a mock-up of the final design so any final changes can be made.
I changed my design by adding another fastening to the front of the bag. I felt like this would make it alot more secure and just looked better overall. I will be attaching the straps to the back of the bag like a rucksack.
I also created a calico toile of my bucket hat. After carefully constructing my pattern, I cut it out and sew it together. I also wanted some snazzy zig zag top stitching, so I whizzed it on the machine to make sure I would actually like it...
My bedroom is currently a crafty mess right now but I can't wait to complete my final piece! :)
