Another project finished! I wouldn’t often make this kind of bag but for a special customer, I make an exception. This modern, minimalistic design will definitely set it apart from other bags. It will catch your eye. I am of course talking about… The triangle bag.
I would say of myself that I am more of a classic-bag-design kind of gal. Though this triangle bag project did make me curious and less frighted of less usual geometric shapes and inspiration. Maybe a next bag could be square…? Let’s think about it a little bit more ;).
I’ve tried different techniques with bag linings. You can either make a drop lining, no lining, a lining sewed along the edges or a fully glued one. This time I wanted to make a fully glued one but with a little batter in between for a soft touch… Well if you try something new, you might fail. Eventually, the batting didn’t work out with this shape and made it like an old wrinkly bag. Not the kind of look I was going for… So eventually I ended up with no batter in between and made it look much better!
This triangle bag if full of turned edges. Some serious skiving had to be done before this would work. I do see the need for a skiving machine. Not only to do it faster but also more consistent and eventually also with the perfect thickness. Until then my two hands are the skiving machine ;).
For now… all it needs is some wrapping paper and a big bow! I am so curious if this is what the customer imagined and if it truly looks amazing with her color matching winter coat!
