satchel prototype no. 4
latest prototype for the satchels. I used a thicker upholstery material instead of the standard cloth-weight fabric, so this version is way more durable. I've started handstitching on some of the trickier areas, which is a whole new thing to learn, but should make for a nicer final product once I get it down.
I think this is the final prototype in terms of paterns and construction methods. From here I'll start to elaborate on this design by adding functionality + durability. I'm also gonna try to branch out a little bit. Messenger bag maybe? Iphone case? I also have a disturbingly strong desire to make a tie out of that beige fabric....I'm not really sure why.
