"Coffee Bag"

A coffee themed bag made from canvas and cotton.
My bag-shaped piece of artwork offers a practical guide to the many coffee drinks that are available to the discerning coffee drinker. It is made from canvas and cotton fabric is appliqued with text and coloured patches inside out. The eyelet and shackle is a fond reference to our sailing heritage, both here on the Isle of Wight, and the first trading ships that would have brought coffee beans to this country.
