We went to Winnipeg today and I got this little book. (Thanks Brenda.)
It is pictures of bags by famous bag makers and also some antique ones. I thought they might inspire me to make some more original bags. Here are a few sample pages.
This one is my absolute favorite. I could imagine quilting all those little scales on but I can't imagine carrying it around! (Sorry about the glare on the pages.)
It says it's done by Priscilla Snyder by sewing miles of multi-colored machine stitches on canvas.
These are simple totes but such great fabric. The white one is LL Bean, and the red ones are by Patch and Kate Spade.
These two bags are beaded but I could see them in fabric, maybe 3D petals. The one on the left is by Enid Collins and the daisy is not attributed to anyone. I love them both.
And I just love the chocolate one by Moschino. It is in leather but it could easily be a tote bag in cloth.
