The Makerie Sewing Goodie Bag Competition - ABSPD Module Two Students' Entries

As part of The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design, Module Two students had the option to take part in a live brief for The Makerie Sewing retreat. The brief was to create a design to go on the front of their 'goodie bags' which are a simple drawstring bag of 11" x 17". Suggestions were to create the design in black and white, incorporate the Makerie icon in a creative way, include The Makerie logo and space for a sponsor logo, and include 'designed by...'
The Makerie was looking for a design that fitted their aesthetic and words used to describe their brand ~ handmade, natural, organic, and modern. The first design you see, by Briana Tomlin, is the competition winner and was well chosen. Congratulations Briana on a lovely job! I would like to show a selection of the other entries as I wasWOWed by the different interpretations and thought them all fascinating and appealing.
