Late last year I was making a lot of wallets in preparation for a couple of holiday shows as well as stocking the online shop and local shops that carry .retool. products. I decided I needed a break, so I got in touch with my friend Pam and offered to make her and her husband Glenn each a bag as a gift.
I suggested a new design I was testing out, but she threw me a curve. For her bag, she countered with a list of features that bore little resemblance to my initial offer. This gave me the opportunity to try something different that I would not have come up with on my own. It also sparked some ideas for some new designs, so it was well worth it!
Here’s what I came up with:
I’ll write more about Glenn’s bag next time.
