in our last post I told you we’d decided on the name for our new design (the Gemini FlightBag) and now we’re ready to crank out a few more show samples on the way to publishing this new pattern!
But here’s the deal, the moment I saw Tula Pink’s “LineWork” fabric collection for Free Spirit Fabrics a few months ago, I knew I HAD to have some in order to work up a sample! And as a full-on fan of ALL things black & white, this fabric collection was a no-brainer for me!
Several folks have inquired as to where the “Gemini” portion of our new bag’s name (Gemini FlightBag) came from, and its a good question. And here’s my reasoning:
Firstly- there’s two separate storage compartments in this bag and many have surmised that this is the reason I chose the word Gemini, but that’s only partially true. The primary reason I chose this word is that as a child of the 60’s, the Space program was fascinating to me, and the Gemini series of launches, which always consisted of two-man launches, was an obvious inspiration to me for this bag.
And now, it’s YOUR turn!
Do you think this bag could qualify as a “Man Bag” were it made up in a more masculine palette of fabrics?
