I’m Being Perfectly Unoriginal!

Good Morning my darlings! Do you remember the backpack that I have  been inching towards completion? It was very influenced by the lovely Dolce and Gabbana Miss Sicily bag……img_3866

Well it seems like I’m not the only one that thought it was lovely, here is a Fendi bag and one from Simply Be………

It took me a long time to realise that designers don’t walk around with their brains stuffed with completely original ideas, that all design is influenced by what has come before, so without further ado, here is the finished backpack…….

Well…not exactly,because I was so pleased with how it was shaping up I searched for actual proper straps, d rings and a way to attach the d rings….


Can you spot the missing component? yup no d rings they are winging their way to me! and I have decided on some icord rather then ribbon that gathered the original…..

I have got another bag on the go ( I decided that I need to practice bag making before starting on my own designs ) I will share it with you soon but next weeks post will be all about my trip to the valley of the nerds-i’m off to Comic Con!

In the meantime who wants a link?

The yarn is Billie Jean from http://www.woolandthegang.com

The straps and D rings came from http://www.u-handbag.com

The flowers are from my stash of felt and other fabrics but great stuff is available at http://www.feltedfanciessupplies.co.uk and http://www.sewsweet.co.uk
