On the table: Pattern Drafting

Right now I'm drafting a pattern for a new product. Wallet anyone? My pattern technique is simple and not technical at all: sketch, transfer exact dimensions to Kraft paper, cut out and then cut out from my chosen textiles.

Drafting a pattern for a new product.

 I'm anxious to try out a new technique that I've been playing out in my head. If it works, it'll make marrying the exterior and interior of my bags and wallets sooooooo easy! I'll keep you posted once I finalize the details. I may even pull it together into a tutorial for you all. What projects are you working on?

As always, happy crafting, and take a look at the at the store for new product, and subscribe to the blog using the link above. Or follow my on Instagram: @byLillianVernell.

More Ostrich!

Recently, I added a black leather pouch with embossed ostrich design which i wrote about here, well, here is some new additions. These are also a soft lambskin leather with the same beautiful embossed ostrich design. These two lovelies are a red, and a greenish-brown color.

Just finished this green-brown leather pouch.
Also, in a rich red color.

 These both will have a removable wristlet and interior pockets. Look for them in the shop soon. You can also find me on Instagram: @bylillianvernell

What's coming up byLillianVernell

I've been prepping some new leathers. These will be made into more pouches and will be added to the shop hopefully by the weekend.
Prepped 3 new leathers for five new pouches. Stay tuned!

Two tan goatskin with an elephant embossed design and an ivory wash look will have silver lining. The lining will feature zipper and slider pockets.

Two orange-spice colored lambskins have a nice smooth finish. These will have a contrasting chocolate brown leather edging design element and will have brown lining. The lining will feature zipper and slider pockets.

And lastly, there will be one, yes just one, pouch made from an antiqued aqua green lambskin patent leather and will have silver lining. The lining will feature zipper and slider pockets.

All designs will feature a removable wrist chain, so the bag can be used as a clutch or a wristlet.

Take a look, and don't forget to follow the blog and @byLillianVernell on Instagram!
