Gee, I felt bad about having neglected the bag Jay at the Red Art Gallery asked me to work on; I had thought it was a few months ago, but it was well before the Expo and Re:fine hooha, meaning, it must have been nearly a year ago. I did make some mock ups, and we discussed it and Jay thought a "landscape" orientation was a little retro and elegant. I got them out of the box, made a few more mock ups in different sizes, and made four of the "landscape" on the right.
On the left is my first trial bag in a size perfect for the cashmere scarf, and on the right is one of the final style, with a false front with wide handle attached with a paper clip. I can't decide if I want to go with the narrower or wider grosgrain ribbon, and though gray looks good, pale yellow and black look ok, too.
It took me more than half a day to make four, and the first one is a little shallower because of a folding glitch, and I still need to get ribbons, and write "MegWeaves" or something with a silver gel pen.
Weaving is the easiest part, isn't it?
