Poster Design - Westchester Symphonic Winds

I recently did some poster design work for the Westchester Symphonic Winds. The first poster was for their concert yesterday, at the Tarrytown Music Hall, where they are the ensemble in residence. It was a really great concert, made me miss playing music a lot. But I was really happy I was able to be a part of it from the design perspective and as an audience member. Above is the poster from yesterday's concert, and be on the lookout for posters for their next two Tarrytown performances! (next time I'll be better about posting the poster BEFORE the event!)

Bandana Tote Bag

I really wanted a new sewing project the other night. At first I thought a pillow, but changed my mind and made this fun tote bag just in time for spring! I might make a few more and experiment with sizes, but this one is about 9" x 11".

It's made with 2 bandanas and a little yellow scrap fabric, along with some velcro for the three inside pockets. I love the black and yellow, they remind me of a bumble bee.

I will eventually finish that pillow...but now I'm thinking I might make some fun tote bags as well. I really want to acquire some silk screening materials so I can print my own designs on them...thats the next step. But for now, I like working with the bandanas.

I haven't worked out pricing yet, but if you would like a bag leave a comment or send me an email with color preferences! Bandanas come in so many colors, you have tons of options!
