Until The End Of Time

The Alpha/Omega messenger bag now available here. I love the smooth, just right curve of the omega and the rugged pre washed navy cotton canvas lining. A nice bag from beginning to end. (Couldn't resist!)

It's a Jungle In Here

I've received a rather large backdrop of printed vinyl to upcycle!

My first projects are being made from a great big green jungle backdrop- perfect to work with on grey cold winter days. This vinyl has been saved from the land fill after it was used on a studio set.

Close up:

The first completed messenger bags will be photographed and listed soon.

.... Later that day ....


Happy Friday.
