Describe: I made a little backpack made out of denim and an old tank top. The subject matter would be to make a functional piece that I could use later on. I initially was going to make a bag and call it my "Sherlock Satchel" but I'm not so sure what I should call it now...nothing sounds cool. In this "art piece" you can clearly see that I like Sherlock Holmes and jeans with a vintage style.
Create: The only media I used in this project was denim, cloth, and fabric glue, with melting Sherlock’s face onto the denim. I basically just used the fabric glue to hold everything together and heat to melt the silhouette.
Big Idea: I had been really wanting to make my own functional piece for a while now, and I love jeans and the style of it, as well as Sherlock. In my work I try to show the devotion and hard work to show people how much I enjoyed making this piece.
Goals: I planned on making this bag so that could be durable and last me a while. If anything happens to it then I definitely will try to fix it and keep it all together. I also had a goal at making something useful for myself which I finally got to accomplish that!
Thoughts: I learned quite a full stuff during this project, I learned that you need to have a goal ahead of time of what you want or it won’t come out the way you want it to. Also, always be attentive on what you are doing and make sure that there isn’t a step you are missing to do. Although I wasn’t so sure how it would all turn out, I am satisfied with my “Sherlock Satchel”. Now I know how to use cloth and fabric material in my art which would help me make more handy things.
