I recently realised that I had now designed and made quite a number of one-off larger bags, each inspired by a painting either by Joan Eardley or FCB Cadell. I thought it would be interesting to gather together photos of some of these bags in one place!
The base fabric of each bag has been individually designed according to the painting though adapted for the size of a larger bag; and then machine knit using either Jamieson's of Shetland Spindrift yarn or Iona Wool weaving yarn. Buttons, ribbons, upcycled fabrics, other brand yarns, embroidery and crochet techniques have been used post-blocking to create an interpretation of the paintings.
