Pinterest Highlights – Backpacks and Leather Journals

For this week’s Pinterest posts I selected a few backpacks to show you more mixed material construction. While less refined than our usual examples, it’s good to sometimes look at how more everyday designs look. Many of the classic bags have their roots in more utilitarian designs like mailbags, railroad cases and doctor satchels.

The second selection shows how personalization can sometime be more meaningful to the maker or the customer. While I might never stamp a “Hufflepuff” logo on my own journal (ha!), I might, for example, add a miniature pair of scissors for a customer who is a dressmaker. As most of you are making things in small batches or single bespoke pieces, you can take advantage of your smaller scale to make something even more personal for your customers and for yourselves.
