I am taking a fun on-line class with Alisa Burke. If you are unfamiliar with Alisa Burke, here is her website and her blog.
Here is the design process for an over-sized coin purse that I am making.
I started with a couple of photos from Design Seeds that are my inspiration [If you are unfamiliar with Design Seeds, see my post here]. I took the inspiration photos and did water-color drawings in my sketchbook to test drive which one I would use. I decided that the first (lotus flower) would be the outside of my purse.
Here is the double pouch purse frame that I am going to use.
Plans for inner pockets...
And my color scheme using hand-dyed fabrics and Golden Paints.
Stayed tuned for completion of the project.
