Gym bag meet Shower Bag
Designed for the gym/sports/dance enthusiasts.
A shower bag which users can detach from the backpack to avoid having to bring your entire backpack and risking getting your entire backpack wet. Also, the detachable backpack is a convenient method of carrying user’s shower item instead of having to carry a separate bag.
Materials used: Paper, Zips
Attachment methods: Taping, Sewing, Gluing
Began by first dissecting the bag into different layers to figure out how to attach them together.
A difficulty I faced was that the size of the backpack is quite big, one sheet of paper will not be able to cover the entire backpack thus having to split it into two sections instead.
The next challenge was attaching the zippers. Especially for the shower bag, the curved layout was tedious to craft. Because of the odd shape, it did not stick well, therefore, I had to sew instead.
I also prepared various pockets within the bag based on the size of my own items; e.g. shampoo/soap bottles, toothbrush, clothes.
