Whilst on the leather and sheepskin supporting study, I took part in a pattern cutting workshop in order to create my only bag design in leather. This involved some very precise measuring and a lot of tracing, however, I was suprised at how logical it was. This resulted in a master pattern, traced pattern pieces and a 3D bag paper mock up in order to see if everything fitted and if the bag dimensions looked right.
First attempt at final bag mock up-
too deep, flap too short
Final bag modified and ready to be made in leather.
