Art Deco bag requirements

HideShow resource information

Here is a list of things you should include to get top marks in section A of your textiles exam. I have written them mostly in the form of questions so you can answer the questions in your design. Remember, section A is worth 48 marks so you need to do well in it. Good luck! :)

Art Deco Bag

    • Velcro
    • Zip
    • Poppers
    • Hook and eye
    • Press studs
    • Buttons and button holes
    • Buckle
    • Lace/ Ribbon
  • Straps/handles:
    • Are they adjustable for a longer life?
    • Are they padded or stuffed for ease of use?

  • Is it 2D or 3D?
  • Pockets:
    • Patch or 3D?
    • How many?

Thanks :) erm, there was an 8mk question on cadcam, quite a few questions on environment and sustainability. There was a question on describe a decorative technique, I think it was applique, and there were a few questions on matching materials to uses. I can't remember much else, but I'll let you know if I do :)

Lea

wow thank you so much<3

if you can remember anything else, that's great but it's okay if you cant cos it was ages ago :P

but thanks so much :)

Apparently my friend says there's a question on taking ideas from the existing coat? What was this question asking and what could you write? :)

Lea

existing coat which was made for cold conditions etc question

I think it was fur or something like that, and I honestly can't be sure but maybe you had to decide what features were good? I think it asked you what material you could use which is more sustainable, but I can't remember :/ sorry :)
