    question about an applique/embroidery

    i'm making a bag for the punk rock flea market, and so i'm at the stage where i need to decide what the front flap will be (it's a pretty early stage, i'm not very far). but i have no idea what to do. so i need input; i drew up several in photoshop. i think the telephone wires look sorta neat but they're meaningless. at this point i may go with bart

    i'd appreciate any advice

    My vote would be for number 4

    Bart's pretty cool. The telephone wires are a close 2nd IMO.

    Telephone wires remind me (happily) of Serial Experiments: Lain.

    2 and 4. Both are graphically pleasing, 2 is a little nuevo pop punk for me, but it definettly has marketability (ie. easy to sell). 4 is just cool, I would rock 4.

    Definitely 4, I gotta say, I think that all the rest are a little hot-toppicy, Bart Simpson, bloody knives and skulls+hearts hanging from trees? Thats some**** I would've worn 10 years ago when I wore baggy pants and skateboarded all day.

    thank you everyone, i'm going to go with number 4, which is probably the most challenging. we'll see how it turns out and i'll post when i'm done with it.

    so it's taken me a while since i've been working a lot, but now that i have only a week left i figured i should get started on the bag. i went with number four, and i worked out all the embroidery stuff tonight. for the people who responded thanks for the input, and i thought you may be curious how it turned out.

    this is just the outter layer of the main flap, totally unfinished.



    there are also still some chalk lines showing that i need to rub out, but you get the picture

    i brought it to my parents house, where my mom owns a machine that can do embroidering, to an extent. so the poles where done by digitizing a picture, and then the wires are all done freehand

    thank you though

    Wow, nice job! that looks awesome. I missed this thread the first time around - I was going to say that if you didn't do the telephone pole image, I might have to, 'cause it's awesome

    Hey, what kind of machine does your mom have? The flap looks really nice. I'd kill for something to make embroidery a bit easier.
