Those of you that follow me on Twitter, Instagram, or even Facebook have know that I've been working on a big project for Seattle Magazine's Seamless in Seattle. It's a contest for clothing/accessory designers in the state of Washington.
Well today I submitted photos of 5 handbags/totes and 3 clutches in the hopes of winning some wonderful prizes and be included in a fashion show (although I'm not really sure how that works with bags.) I had 2 of my wonderful friends help model the bags at the beach over this past weekend. We had so much fun.
I've been keeping my designs secret until now. I would like to share with you a few of the photos that I submitted as well as brief descriptions.
