A New Bag for My Upcoming Show

I’ve got some organic cotton tape zippers that I’ve been meaning to try to dye for a while now, I finally dipped one into an indigo bath a couple weeks ago and was happy to see that it dyes quite well!

So I set about designing a small, cross body bag that would feature a hand dyed zipper!

The back has a pocket for easy access to a cell phone

Once I had the size and construction figured out, I drew out four pairs of glue resist patterns to indigo dye, along with some shibori style as well.
