Design process for new handbag…

I love sitting down with my sketchbook and working on new designs.  It’s so exciting when you have an idea and see it develop from a sketch (then two, then three, then four…!), then gradually into a pattern (then two, then three, then four…!), then a mocked up bag in calico and finally the finished product….!  There are many changes and tweaks along the way but the whole process is incredibly satisfying, especially when you end up with a bag you love.

A lot goes into creating a new design, so I thought I’d share a photo of what my sewing table looks like when I’m mid-creation with all my musings and workings out.

Pattern drawing and puzzle solving!
