Bag Ad

This is a LV advert from the New Yorker.

I'd work in that workshop, for sure.

Makin' Stuff Flat

So this is what I've been doing for the last coupla days: ironing the hell out of some bag flaps.
The embroidery machine (I forgot to take a picture of it--six heads, pretty impressive) left these nice circle creases in the fabric, which I had to iron out. 'Tweren't too bad. Though I had to do it 109 times. Ha.

There's the little offender there.
Sorry 'bout the shoddy images. I couldn't be bothered to use a proper camera.

Super Musette

I just put this together. My friend Linds did the screen print. 15x11", 12x3" bottom. #8 cotton duck, lined with 1000d Cordura nylon.

Trying a new simple pocket design here. This is a two-part pocket. The front pocket has a lip on the top. In theory this will keep small things like coins from sliding out if it's turned upside down. We'll see how it actually works... And then there's an open pocket behind it...with some pen pockets in there. Pretty snazzy.
Cross-strap attachment on the shoulder strap. I was going to put it in the seam, but I forgot. This works better anyway.
And here's what it looks like on someone who's fairly small. How tall are you, Jenny? I forget.
