Work in progress - black pouches

Work in progress
Colours will be next!

Today I don't have so much to tell really but I wanted to show you what I have been working on.
Seven black pouches of sixteen that I have sketched out.

I always start with a white soft drawing pencil for the sketch and then add the white fabric-paint to refine my sketch before even thinking about the colours. Once the colours have been added (how much depends on each pouch) I add the final touches with the white fabric pen then fix the colours with the iron.
Then I will start sewing.

I ordered some more zippers early in the week and got them on Thursday and this time I got some more colours. Three meters of turquoise zipper with clasps and two shades of red (also with clasp), I did get some more black too. Was going to order pink or purple too but I think I'll get them another time.

Hopefully I will finish some of them this week and I also have a new batch of white pouches in the making as well.


Work in progress, black pouches
I have more motives sketched out but I will finish these first.

Today I took some photos of my ACEO drawings that I will be adding to my shop in the coming weeks.

Every one of the drawings is original but I have or will reuse some of the characters for different things, like on the pouches.

I'm also thinking of maybe make them into digital stamps but I'm not sure yet. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
