Since first year at high school, I never though I would be back on a sewing machine, so imagine my surprise when my first project of this academic year requires using one. I really like how our new Product Design brief allows us to use technologies and materials we wouldn’t normally use. We’re asked to make a Laptop bag/case. It’s something we all have and its something we’ll all have to use at some point and I think it will help develop our own design and creative styles, if not, then help us find one.
I think some one-on-one time with the sewing machine is needed, as the first thing I have to do is make a bag from a set pattern. Using this blog as a digital scrapbook, I will be able to record my progress and be able to use it to assess how I’m getting on.
(Finally a project where I can ask mum’s advice)
