Well, it's time for my yearly fancy bag. Did this for the True/False Film Fest's Boone Dawdle
. The film this year was Breaking a Monster
, a doc about the preteen metal band Unlocking The Truth and their deal with the Devil.
I hope this bag is metal enough...
17 inches across the top.
Floating liner. Trying some new construction techniques, plus a 3D zip pocket.
Flipside almost looks cooler...
Sourcing materials is always one of the trickier aspects of bagmaking. Took me a couple tries to find a satisfactory chainstitch thread. Burmilana from Madeira is great
. Got a bunch of the wool/acrylic ... and a couple in cotton/acrylic.
Made a bonus tote bag from an old acrylic T/F banner (see below). More of these to come, I imagine.
These have been flown every January/February downtown for the last seven-or-so years and are being retired. (Photo by T/F.)
