Designer Paint palette bag

I designed this bag to suit my scatty mind. It has about a million pockets, so I no longer have to dig deep for things in my bag.

Each pocket has a different size to fit whatever it is supposed to hold. I got a separate pocket for my sunglasses, for instance. I works great; my sunglasses last much longer now they have their own home. The bag even has a large pocket to fit a big sketch book, coat or my veggie shopping.

It’s all made with leather so it will last and be biodegradable. Initially I wanted each paint blob to have a different colour, but while mixing paint I ended up with a mixed up paint look over all the pockets.

I still have to make the strap into a big paint brush (I wanted to finish the bag in a hurry so I made a simple strap).

Going through customs with this bag is great fun; they get very confused by so many pockets. And they never find my tampon pocket.
