Description

New for 2018! Folding Journal Sketchbook Bag that can fit your favorite sketchbook or journal, plus your everyday items such as your wallet and phone.
Includes an adjustable strap that can be worn across the body, or over your shoulder. Perfect for writers, artists, creatives, lovers of good quality bags...you!

I love designing textiles. For the last few years I have been taking classes, participating in online textile design forums, and spending a lot of time learning how to create wonderful, inspired fabric designs. This fall I am releasing a handful of my textile designs on new items- handbags and pencil cases!

This particular listing is for Pre-ordering the Amber Coppings Designs Journal Sketchbook Bag in one of six fabric designs shipping by Thanksgiving 2018 (November 22, 2018). Look at the last photo for all your choices!

4 fabrics were designed using actual hand-dyed Japanese shibori fabrics that I created in my studio, then scanned and digitized. The other 2 are inspired by sketches and paintings created while in the backrooms of Mollusk Collection at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh- I love snails!

This recycled polyester canvas fabric was printed by Spoonflower using ecologically sound printing practices.


AWESOME Features:

*1 outside zipper pocket that can hold your phone, wallet and small essential items. This pocket is easy to access while wearing, so you don't have to unfold it to get to your latest texts.

*1 inside zipper pocket that can hold your favorite writing and drawing implements. I also put my traveling watercolor set in this pocket, plus a few brushes.

*1 inside open pocket that will fit a 8.5" x 5.5" sketchbook/journal/daily planner with or without a spiral binding. (Anything smaller will not be a problem. Anything bigger may not allow the bag to shut properly.)

*2 heavy duty snap closures that are easy to use whether you are wearing the bag, or have it on your lap or table.

*1 adjustable strap that can be worn across the body, or over the shoulder. 1" wide, 31.5" at it's shortest length, 54" long at it's longest.
You can also take the strap off and throw this Journal Sketchbook Bag into a bigger bag. Perfect for longer art hikes.

* 11" wide x 8" height when closed, 18" long when opened.

*Journal Sketchbook Bags are all made with recycled polyester canvas which is durable, stain- and water- resistant. Unfold and lay this bag flat to create an easy to clean place mat. Just wipe it clean with a cloth, or throw it in the washer! (care instructions below)

*Clip the outside D-rings to other bags (see photos for how this can work with other Amber Coppings Designs bags)

*All pockets are lined with a vivid blue fabric for durability and an extra pop of color.

*Each bag will have a different combination of zipper colors- no two bags will be exactly alike!

*100% vegan materials, all sourced and created in the U.S.

*The adjustable strap can be used on any Amber Coppings Designs bag. Feel free to buy more than one and switch the straps around!


PRE-ORDER Facts:

*All pre-orders will ship by Thanksgiving 2018.

*I am limiting Journal Bag pre-orders to 25 bags. Order soon to make sure you are on the list!

*Advantages! All pre-orders will ship FREE! Plus, we will send you a coupon code for Free Shipping on any additional items you want to purchase that are in stock in the shop at the time, or anytime before 12/31/18. That's a whole lot of savings on shipping!

*Plus, all pre-orders will arrive with a 8"x8" square of a fabric designed and chosen by me in my studio. Use it in your personal sewing projects, add it as a pocket on your favorite skirt...so many fun possibilities!

* Choose your pattern in the dropdown menu during checkout. Variations are listed in the same order as the photo with fabric options. You can zoom into photos using the zoom button on the bottom left of any photo. Top left to right: Circle Shibori, Hiro Nui Shibori, Mulitcolored Shibori. Bottom left to right: Rust Brush, Undersea Mollusks, Snails in their Houses.

*Why pre-orders? My lovely studio collaborator, Lauren, is going on maternity leave to get to know her new little baby. Pre-orders will help us plan our studio time well and realistically while giving her needed time off.

CARE Instructions:

Wash separately in cool or warm water using a gentle machine cycle. Machine dry using a low temperature or permanent press setting and remove promptly to avoid wrinkles. If required, use an iron with a light touch. Use the iron on a synthetic setting only.
