One long train ride home, I began aimlessly doodling on a blank tote bag, using my Bamboo Paper.
Have I ever told you how much I love tote bags? I use them every single day because even all my leather bags are actually totes, so I’ve realized. They’re fuss- free. They’re not too serious. They’re versatile. And they’ve gone so far, in terms of aesthetics and design. Ask Marc Jacobs or even Chanel- they’ve been doing takes on the tote bag’s classic form.
Before I knew it, I had a set of four coherently- (albeit haphazardly) drawn prints. The moment i saw that, a strong vision/ revelation presented its self: I need to do something!
As with all things that excite me, I proceeded to make a list… On yet another blank tote bag.
Just as I was laying out all these materials on the table, an amazing case of de javu ensued: I am 18 years old and back in my College dormitory, painting and sewing clothes to sell in class; to give my friends…
What a beautiful realization- that one may become younger, feel younger just by doing the things one’s younger self used to love. ❤
What’s better than a tote bag? A teeny tiny tote bag!
What can you fit in there?
… The bare essentials, of course! Going out to lunch break or a casual party? You only really need your mobile phone, your wallet/ coin purse, a lipstick, and your keys!
Won’t I get robbed? It’s too unsecured!
… Unless someone comes at you with a buzz saw and hacks your whole wrist off, nothing is getting through that teeny tiny bag and your hand!
…. Imagine being at someone’s barbecue party: You sling that tiny bag on your wrist. You bring a hotdog bun with your right hand and your drink with your left. *elbow knudge* Nice, eh?
Have you even finished making these bags?
To be continued.
