Lost Wax Casting v2

I decided to put the silver map of Winnipeg on my bag, as I use that year round. The silver is a nice contrast to the dark grey felt.

Sitting Pretty in the Lower Corner.

I made the bag last year out of 1/4 inch industrial felt picked up from Brand Felt in Mississauga. That was a pretty crappy bike ride, especially on the way back with the minimum order of 15 pounds of felt strapped to my back pack. Made me empathize with this guy we saw in China.

Stitched on with Black Thread.

The map shows some major roads and the two main rivers of Winnipeg all framed within the Perimeter Highway.


Now I just hope it doesn't get ripped off on the subway.
