American Indian

Patchwork I made for the outside of backpack.

Sourcces: Various, I love wild fox, Fashion gone rogue, Rush

Year 11 textiles project.
Inspiration American Indian, Old style backpack.
This backpack has no zipper. Instead it will have a flap, which will be made of denim
and a old belt buckle to hold the flap down.
The patchwork will make up the outside of the bag, making it have a 3D effect.
