outside of Benjamin tallit bag constructed
My friend Sandy, commented that she liked the simplicity of the landscape. I liked it too, but it was just a bit too dour as it was. My Art History professors used to talk about balance in a painting. The bag just a bit off balance in it's deep darkness. I also added a blue seed bead for the wolf's eye. You can't see it in the photo, and it isn't even that visible in real life, but it just catches a bit more light and brightens the bag up a bit more. The wool flannel seems to absorb all light around it, so I need do do what I can to counteract that a bit.
I fused both the front and the back of the bag to fusible fleece so it will have a bit more heft. I also managed to sew the bag together incorrectly three times. I inserted a light blue zipper at the top in only two attempts.
I still need to write a translation of the text on the outside onto the lining and then insert the lining into the bag. This bag is slightly ahead of schedule which is a good thing.
We were invited to Shabbat dinner at a friend's so I gained an extra work day. Hurray!!
