The truth is that not all things creative are born of inspiration. Some are just built a day at a time like Life until suddenly a direction is determined. It appears this piece started aimlessly to use up paint or maybe I just didn’t know what I wanted to do that day.
I know that’s quite a jump. It’s not hard to notice that more painting has been done. Alas, I couldn’t find any photos for you of the process. I probably thought I wasn’t doing anything important. (Please don’t say I should think that way more often!)
Notice the frayed edges? I often rip fabric as it is quicker and automatically on the grain.
I ‘built in’ a pocket on either side by folding the fabric. You can tell if you look close enough. I used orange thread to do wobbly lines of stitch on the gray fabric. (Gray fabric is upcycled from uniform trousers.) Bag and more photos are here. SOLD
