The Design Process

To design my tote bags, I first start by examining the fabric and choosing the colors that will match the canvas fabric, zippers and straps that I have. Once I have all of my materials, I cut the patterns and stack them neatly for the next step of the process.

I can now begin the sewing process! I like to create multiple bags at a time in somewhat of an assembly line.
