Here is the prototype! I stitched it all by hand, which is no feat of little significance. It wasn't easy let me tell you. The gnawing ache in my back soothed the cramp in my hands. My eyes cowered in the light and desperately were seeking plain white walls as comfort. As I was nearing the last stitch my brain was reeling from the design. Why had I not sought a pattern from which to draw my design? All in all this was a great educational experience.
Still there are no buttons, and there may never be- at least not until I create the final. The end goal is to create a unique and enticing portfolio sleeve to showcase my fashion illustrations. Found in the links here
One day I will take good pictures I promise.
