Erika painted a series of Eyeball paintings in 2004.

We have been using paintings left over from that show in a new series of bags. 

Here is the first one.
Beanstalk
This painting was called ‘Beanstalk’.

Making the lining

After sewing the sides in and lining the bag, she used strips of another painting for binding/trim.

We just got a new walking foot industrial sewing machine – I traded a guy in Redding a kayak for it.  It is a Seiko STH-8BLD-3 for those of you that care about these details.  We have been looking for a long time for this sort of machine.  I wanted to bring it to bed with us the first night but Erika was worried that the baby might get hurt.

It wouldn’t be a ZeekoBag without details – we love our details.
