February 2020 Personal Creative Challenge, Day 22: New Purse and Bag Designs

I’ve included another of this month’s planned merchandise designs in my February creative challenge: new tote bags and purses! I took Saturday to work out three different styles using both cat art and flower art and photography. I’ve ideas in mind for shape, size, braided handles, tassels, grommets, zipper closures, all sorts of detailing that made my designs, and each bag, unique.

    Thanks for sharing. All three look very beautiful and you did such an incredible job. We like the tassels on the middle one. Something different that you never see really. We hope you have a wonderful rest of your week.

      Thank you! That bag with the tassels was the first idea, looking at that painting and knowing it needed a vertical presentation, then the braided yarn handle and tassels were a part of it from the beginning. I’m hooked now!

      Thank you so much, Tabbies! I was so happy to finally see these ideas come to fruition. They’ve been taking up a lot of space in my head wanting to get out.
