Drawstring Bag of Many Projects

Drawstring Bag 2

I have a fair amount of custom-embossed Celtic key pattern velvet left from the pillow project.  I was thinking some of it might make a cool drawstring bag.  I may have gotten a little carried away with the details:

  • Silk-lined round-bottom bag
  • A new Celtic knotwork ring design for a laser-engraved faux-leather bottom
  • Kumihimo braided drawstring
  • Customized skull beads
  • Second set of skull beads from scratch

There is a separate post with the design files for the floss separator I made for this, in case it is of use to anyone else.

It was a lot of fun and, I’m happy with the result.  Of course, I shot video of every step of the construction of both versions of the bag.

 

 

Celtic Knotwork Journal

Celtic Snowflake Journals (4 Colors)

These journal covers are engraved with my Snowflake Celtic knotwork design (and a new corner piece I designed specifically for these).  These are laser-cut and engraved, then saddle stitched by hand (using the stitching pony I made recently).  These are made from a synthetic/vegan leather that looks and feel impressively like real leather.  I personalized a few of them.  These slip onto the Baron Fig Vanguard notebooks, which can be easily swapped as notebooks are filled.

I also made some packaging for them.  The Ice Gold cover stock laser engraves in a nice metallic gold for the design and ambigram logo.

Silver Snowflake Celtic Knotwork T-Shirt

Silver Snowflake Celtic Knotwork Unisex T-Shirt

During the holidays last year, I was looking through some of my old Celtic knotwork designs.  I came upon the original pencil sketch of my 1992 Snowflake design and, decided to print it in silver on some really nice black 100% cotton heavyweight T-shirts to give as gifts to family and friends.  They came out great and, were a big hit.

Special thanks to my good friend and wonderful, highly photogenic model, Tanya, for showing off the women’s fitted shirt for the photo!

Of course, I printed more than I needed and, have some extra shirts, both in a standard unisex T and, a fitted women’s T.  So, those are up in the online shop, if you want to grab one.  There are limited quantities on-hand but, I can easily print more, if there is enough demand.
