More about my amazing University Course!

I Study Decorative Arts at Nottingham Trent University.. if you didnt already know! Here is a promotional video made by the third years, about our course. It sums it up really nicely and i am proud to say i am part of this movement!

The third years are currently working on their final degree shows and also the setup and running of their live trading module, which includes setting up a bricks and mortar shop in Nottingham City Center. I have been given the opportunity to have my products for sale inside this amazing two-week-only pop up shop!! I also had a few items in the last years shop too :)

We go to set up on Saturday. Ill post some more information about this space closer to the time!

The Weekender Bag Progress

some fabric samples for accessories
 Sorry for the jump here - i dont have good photos of all of the fabrics seperately which i know its kinda stupid but yah - here is the finished article! It took me three days of printing and three days of construction and is all from scratch, including piping and handles etc.

The finished bag :)

Feature fabrics for kindle case pockets.

the luggage tag which comes with the luggage bag. It is the purple print on the reverse!

Bag feet. im showing everyone my bag feet.. proud of these haha!

so to conclude although i am quite proud of my creation, i have leart some very valuable lesson which i will take forward with to to third year. i also have a better design placement idea, but hell im not making another bag (They are way too expensive to make).

Thanks for looking!
