Isabella Student Art Tote Bag

Recently I designed a practical and attractive tote bag for one of my nieces, Isabella who is a talented art student. She probably has a very busy life and when carrying her art supplies, she wants to know that her tote bag is rugged, durable, made of recycled materials, and attractive too. She loves to take lots of self-portraits that are very expressive.

The tote bag is designed to open flat and carry a standard set of pencils and markers. The entire purse is made of used drapery material and bound with simple black binding ribbon. It has an over the shoulder sash that is edged with lilac leather bought at a local leather workshop in the Kemptville area. The tote bag closes over with strong separable zippers on either side of the closed bag. It finally closes up with a large recycled button in the centre.

This young artist for which the bag is named has also designed an album cover and is leaning toward a career in illustration. I am looking forward to her comments and criticisms regarding the tote bag as it is the first prototype and needs to be adjusted and re-designed to make it that much better. I hope you enjoy the tote bag, Isabella, and keep creating!
