The Vessel Project - "Pip Squeek"

Here is another featured project from Susan Schwartz’s DEC 404 – Interior Decorating Class 2011 (Humber Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning, School of Applied Technology), Kristy Canning. Kristy Canning is, a recent graduate from Humber College, here is her vessel, “Pip Squeek.”




Kristy wanted to create something practical and simple. She decided to make a laptop case because it would be something that could be used on a regular basis. What a wonderful idea! She chose out of the remnants an industrial felt and a designer felt, which proved to be a winning colour combination! The vessel was hand sewn together and keeps closed using an oversized button. This laptop sleeve also has a neat front pocket that can hold a few additional supplies as well as a small mouse! As Kristy describes, “…just something for fun!”This is definitely an item that can be used everyday, which we love when we see our felt put to great use!

Materials Used
- Remnant Felt
- Oversized Button
