Chapter 12 - Mock up of bag with a gusset

Below are a couple of photos of a mock up of my proposed final 3D project made with white card and thick cotton thread for the shoulder strap. The elements have been taped together with sellotape. My plan is to use black fabric for the gusset, decorated possibly with overlapping flaps of fabric representing the scales of the tortoise legs.

 The shoulder strap will be made from a braid of machine stitched cords.

I really like these little 3D shapes moulded to replicate the raised protrusions found on some tortoise shells.

Next step is to try and pull all these elements together! :)
