New zips from the Op-Shop! #retrorainbow

Went fabric shopping today! I found all these wonderful pieces at a closing down sale :D

Finally finished this today for homework; it’s a tonal study of white fabric over a chair and black fabric as a background. My drawing portfolio somehow snuck in there too.

Got some amazing fabric during my trip to Singapore and Thailand! I’m hoping to make a lot of neat things out of them! :D

So during these holidays I have been ABSOLUTELY bored as beans! With all this time on my hands and stumbling upon some awesome material in my fabric box, I made a backpack in preparation for uni (because carrying my school backpack would have been the worst) 

These are all the materials: 

  • Sturdy patterned cotton (roughly the strength of denim)
  • Green cotton fabric
  • Medium weight interfacing
  • Plastic sheet (extra strength for bottom of bag)
  • Green bias tape
  • Piping cord
  • Batting (for straps)
  • Eyelets (two different sizes)
  • Green Webbing
  • Brass belt buckles
  • Zipper (for inside pocket in the main compartment)

 I made my own pattern after drawing inspiration from similar styled backpacks and several backpack tutorials. It took roughly six days to make however I had to wait two weeks for the webbing I ordered for the straps.
