STLC WHAT’S ON THE MAKER’S TABLE

 


 

Here are some images of the pieces that I’m currently working on; a silver and purple ‘Fleur de Lys’ pot and my new ‘Trois Fleur de Lys’ small tote bag.

All of the above showing the two main pieces cut out and marked up ready to be scored; I will show more of the process as I go along……

Above top shows the back of the ‘fleurs’ which I insert into the front of the bag. Each fleur has two seperate flowers which are then put together once the main outer fleur has been secured into the bag front. Second and third image down show how the fleurs sit, with the fourth image showing the front of the bag.

Above top shows some of the pattern pieces for just one size of the fleurs; I use 3 sizes on this bag. Second image down shows the internal zip pocket, the next the inside of the pocket pulled out to show my makers mark and the next shows the back of the pocket that is never seen as it sits inside the lining of the bag. I will post new pictures of the bag as it progresses =)
