Bag designs

The idea of different bag designs interests me, as I am sure you can imagine:)!

This week I have been thinking about smaller shoulder bags. My current range of stock is for large shoulder bags, influenced by my own bag requirements –  drinks, changes of clothes for tots, the compulsory packet of wipes, snacks.

Feedback often mentions the desire for smaller bags. With a couple of craft events imminent I am thinking about new designs which can cater for women who would like a bag for their purse, mobile and umbrella.

Bag design

This bag measures 3″, by 9″ and is approx. 8″ high, it incorporates a concealed top zipper, and internal pocket. Created from a pair of corduroy trousers and former shirt, it sits neatly under the arm. This bag has structure lined with interfacing for it to hold it’s shape. Made as a recent commission the bag was designed to fit an umbrella in the base of the bag.

My second design is a little bigger measuring, 12″ by 13″ . My aim with this bag was to create a different design for a smaller bag, keeping a design feature of the original corduroy trousers. It is much softer, lined with a beautiful shirt.

Personally I have a strong preference for one design over the other, although ironically it is not a bag I would personally use!

What do you think? Which is your favourite, why? What’s your favourite size of bag and handle? I would love to know:)

As usual I have endeavoured to maximise the remainder fabric from the former clothes, whipping up IPAD cases and bottle bags.

Have you been following Purse Palozza this year? A huge variety of bag patterns have been reviewed, by various bloggers. Plus there is a great link up for your own bags, with a great selection of prizes:) I am linking up a few bags, with fingers crossed!!

Trusting you have had a great creative week I am off to check out Handmade Harbour,

Vicky
