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
Cool! Your hands knew what to do!
