It so hard to wait. Here is one of the first sketches I made for my very own Sasaki purse. I love the burlap sack purses she makes already and commissioned her to make some for my family members this Christmas using their company's own coffee sacks.
Of course, it wasn't long after wrapping up all those purses and giving them away did I realize that I realy wanted one for myself.
So I tried to come up with a image that had something to do with coffee- to go with the burlap fabric- but would also allow me to do something very whimsical and nouveau- how I like to do.
I wanted to get an up close look at the coffee flowers while also being far enough away to have quite a bit of the ladies figure in view. So I came up with this odd angle, almost looking down at her through a tornado of coffee branches.
Now I am just waiting for my fabric to arrive and then I can send it all off to "the sweat shop".
