Last week, I made this bag for Project Quilt. You can read about it here. It was definitely a squirrel type project, design to completion in 4 days.
This morning, I saw this bag in my newsfeed. It is at the Prada show during London Fashion Week.
The trapezoid shape is a bit more accentuated, but very similar to my bag. Although the Prada bag is so boring. It doesn't have a focus cat fabric. A similar bag on the Prada website sells for $4800.
I don't sell my bags, because people who might pay $5000 for a bag that says Prada on it, won't even pay the cost of materials for one custom made by a home-based artisan.
I can now reveal that I had a part of a quilt that is currently hanging at QuiltCon. I never expected to say those words.
Last summer, Sam Hunter of Hunter Designs asked for blocks to make this quilt It is called " Myriad Interpretations of Language". The instructions were to make a block of a specified size in a solid fabric, embroider a line across it in any colour, then embroider a second line that crosses the first, in another colour. This is what resulted. I think it is gorgeous.
