I like to keep an eye on the upcoming Spoonflower contest themes and What’s In Your Bag jumped out at me a few weeks ago. What with work and broken eyeballs and the like, I didn’t think I could make something in time, but I just managed it.
Here’s the drawings I did in my sketchbook, which I then scanned in and coloured in Photoshop. I dropped a few things at the inking and colouring stages, either because they didn’t look like anything recognisable or were boring. Sorry fold-up hairbrush and tiny screwdriver for glasses. I also cheated slightly by including my iPhone and keys even through they are always in my pockets.
I am really pleased with how it all turned out and I think my iPhone and keys are my favourite. Fun fact: I did originally draw the Cakeify fabric on my first aid pouch, but I thought it would be cool to use the actual fabric design since it’s Spoonflower fabric – woo, meta.
You can view the full fabric repeat at Spoonflower and voting opens later this week so please look out for it and vote for me! I will of course remind you later.
So, what’s in your bag?
