A Peek into the Design Process

Lots of pieces of paper and fabric have been sacrificed over the past couple of days as I have tussled with the design of a new clutch bag intended for surface embroidery and beadwork. The protype is now finished and I am rather pleased with the shape. I just have to design the fabrics now. Plenty of ideas in mind, far too many, so if you have a preference please let me know as a nudge in a particular direction would be a great help. Beaded Bag Designs

Patterns are now starting to develop. I need to make an emergency dash to the art shop to fetch some more canvases and paint.
